Tidal Wave: Against the Tide

In several places in the world, local landscapes and hot flashes can become a cause of the phenomenon, which is called a tidal wave. It is formed when huge masses of water fall into the narrow channel of the river.

9-meter-high tidal wave in the Qiantang River in China is recognized as a unique natural phenomenon. At high tide, millions of cubic meters of water, skirting the small islands, moving against the current of the river, bewitching views of observers. Tidal waves have in other places, such, Alaska, Brazil (the Amazon River) and the largest in terms of extended river in the UK – Severn.

Today, we look at the tidal wave, as well as the observers for them insane.
