Canal Park Wave Danger



Wave watching during Noreasters is an incredible experience. Sometimes watchers get a bit too close as shown in this scene from the Duluth Canal Cam taken Saturday evening.

  5. I saw the first one happen live - I was watching at the time. The second one, though, was just...wow! That was the biggest wave (or series of waves) I saw from everything I watched. Yikes!
