BMG warns of high tidal wave in Arafuru waters

Breaking Earth News
JAKARTA (Antara): The Geophysics and Meteorology (BMG) warned Tuesday that high tidal wave would hit Arafuru waters, eastern Indonesia on Thursday and Friday.
"The tidal wave could reach three to four meters high," Arif Triyono of BMG Tanjung Perak, Surabaya said Tuesday.
Different pressure between northern Australia and eastern Indonesia was likely to cause the high tidal wave in Arafuru waters, he added.

FREAK WAVES/ HIGH TIDES

SOUTH AFRICA - The Red Bull Big Wave Africa 2007 surfing contest was postponed on Monday, the 18th. Some waves were solid 20 to 25-foot sets, but they were far from ideal for running the event. "It was really difficult out there. It was definitely the right decision not to go with the event. The waves were big, but WEIRD and coming from all directions." Tuesday morning (19 June) dawned with a marked drop in swell, to almost half the size of Monday, and the competition was called off again, in order to wait for the next storm.
