“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.
