75ft wave off California coast

“At 7:33 p.m. on Nov. 26, the No. 94 Cape Mendocino buoy operated by Scripps Institution of Oceanography Coastal Data Information Program recorded a maximum significant wave height of 43.1 feet, and that night also measured a wave of 75 feet. These waves were in water 1,132 feet deep and were at 13.3-second intervals.”

““But if anyone was at sea in a small boat near that storm,” Patzert said, “it must have been hell and, possibly, deadly.””

Sustained winds of 85mph with gusts to 106. Quite the storm.

Re: 75ft wave off California coast

Thank you for sharing this, Chris. The issue of slope on the face of this wave is not resolved, but seeing that sucker coming at you is what nightmares are made of.
