Monstrous wave broke the height record for the Southern Hemisphere

In 700 kilometers from New Zealand, the automatic meteorological station recorded an impressive wave, the height of which reached 23.8 meters.

As reported, this height is a record for the Southern Hemisphere.

Prior to this, the altitude record was held by a 22.03-meter wave. However, it is clarified that the buoy could simply not register larger waves, since the station is switched on only for 20 minutes every three hours.

However, the absolute record belongs to the megacuns, which arose from a landslide in the Gulf of Lituya, located in the southeast of Alaska. Then the wave height reached 500 meters.
