Rabat – The 7.5 meter-tall waves that hit Salé, Rabat and Casablanca early Friday morning have resulted damages.
Videos of the incident were posted on social media platforms showing the waves breaking the facades of five small stadiums located next to the shore of Salé’s Sidi Moussa, with water spreading to the houses that are located near the shore.
The videos also showthat the waves have swept stones of the sea, damaging the infrastructure of “Salé’s Shore” project known better in French as “Corniche Salé.”
The National Directorate of Meteorology said that the high intensity waves were the result of low of in the Atlantic Ocean’s width in addition to strong winds.
The Directorate’s responsible of communication, Houssine Youaabed, explained that what happened is a phenomenon called in French “La mer du vent,”[what is this?] noting that the waves will gradually reduce to four meters, starting Friday afternoon.
The Directorate issued earlier this week a rising water warning, stating that waves of 5 to 7 meters were set to hit the coastlines of Morocco over the next two days.
