A “rogue” wave inundated the coast near Pacific Beach in Washington last weekend (on 1/16/2016 — and it was all caught on camera.

Luckily no one was caught in the water at the time, but what exactly caused the “mini tsunami”? Called rogue, freak or killer waves, this phenomena has been a part of marine folklore for centuries. But rogue waves have only recently been accepted as an actual scientific event. Johanna Wagstaffe reports. (CBC)

KING 5 also covered the story, with a bit more depth to the story.
