AlexWorld





In a few places on Earth tides and local landscapes can become a cause of the phenomenon, which is called a tidal wave. It is formed when a huge mass of water fall into the narrow channel of the river.

9-meter high tidal wave on the Qiantang River in China recognized as a unique natural phenomenon. During high tide, millions of cubic meters of water, skirting the small islands, moving against the flow of the river, bewitching views of observers. Tidal waves exist in other places, such Alaska, Brazil (Amazon River) and the biggest longest river in the UK – Severn.

Today’s look at the tidal waves, as well as the observers for them insane.

Time of the collision wave with wave breakers on the shore is especially spectacular. But observe this phenomenon is extremely dangerous, and high wave periodically causes the death of people watching her. August 22, 2013. (Photo by ChinaFotoPress | ChinaFotoPress via Getty Images):
