This year, it happened on August 12 where hundreds of eager people have flocked to see the “much awaited” tidal wave. But unexpectedly, they got a much up close view when the wave to a powerful surge and washed over them, sweeping them off their feet.

The shocked onlookers run away and took cover from the monster wave while others who were not lucky enough to escape sooner were drenched by the gigantic wave.
