Hari ini, pada hari Senin, Januari 18, 2021, the condition of the Megamas area, Manado, Sulawesi Utara, looks messy after being hit by the extreme waves.
Lots of rocks, garbage and even dozens of fishing boats crashed onto the land.
Extreme waves overflowed to the main road area in Megamas including entering Manado Town Square (Mantos).
It appears that the road in the area behind Megamas Manado is full of stones from the seafront. There is also trash to the boats that crash into the shop area.
The sea water on Sunday, Januari 17 afternoon did indeed rise to the mainland. The cause is due to the tidal wave. The Meteorology, Badan Klimatologi dan Geofisika (BMKG) is watching out for waves 2.5 untuk 4 meters high in Manado, Sulawesi Utara.
“So the wave height is 2.5 untuk 4 meter,” said Head of the Center for Maritime Meteorology of BMKG Eko Prasetyo in a written statement reported by Antara, Minggu, Januari 17.
BMKG said that the high waves were triggered by the push of ocean wave energy which is superposing to the tidal phase of the sea water.
Kemudian, in addition to high waves in Manado, BMKG also issued an early warning of high waves of more than 6 meters in a number of waters in Indonesia which took effect from January 17 di 07.00 saya, local time to January 19, 2021 di 07.00 saya, waktu lokal.
