Morocco is under the threat of a mini-tsunami. The information, reported by the Arabic-language daily Assabah in its delivery this Friday, November 16, is to be taken very seriously.
Indeed, the head of communication of the National Meteorological Directorate says that the climate will be mild this weekend on the coastal cities of the Kingdom.
Houcine Bouayed indicates that giant waves, which could reach several meters high, may hit the Atlantic coast, between Rabat and Agadir, from Saturday.
These waves, which will coincide with high tides on the Atlantic coast, could rise up to 8 meters, says Assabah.
Bouayed therefore advises the inhabitants of the cities concerned to take their precautions and to avoid, for water sports enthusiasts, venturing into the ocean.
Assabah adds that this situation will persist during the day of Monday, to abate from Tuesday.
As a reminder, a mini-tsunami 9 meters high hit Morocco in January 2014, submerging neighborhoods and coastal areas of Sale, Rabat, Mohammedia, Casablanca, El Jadida, Safi and Agadir.
This strong storm, which surprised the citizens, caused a great deal of material damage, but fortunately did not cause any casualties.
