Here is more incredible video footage and photos of the massive freak waves – with one specifically being mini Tsunami-like in its nature – that pounded Durban’s beach front promenade in South Africa today, Sunday 12 March 2017.

The strong winds and big swell are believed to have been caused by powerful Cyclone Enawo which hit Madagascar five days ago, the strongest storm to hit the island in 13 years.

Watch Craig Dove’s videos of the huge mini-tsunami-like wave in Durban here as well as two other videos below – one from a member of the crowd caught by surprise as the wave hit the shores and rushed up towards the car park; and another with an aerial view from a hotel or apartment building overlooking Durban’s rough seas.

The beaches were closed to swimmers.

Sam Cross (from Sam Cross Art) also managed to capture some photos from a safer distance. She said: “Durban promenade from a distance. A safer place to be!” (See below.)
