Was this sign of an incoming tsunami? via Facebook

Waters recede ahead of a tsunami, so you understand people running for their lifes, when they observed this phenomenon. When there are no signs of large quakes and tsunamis, weather specialists believe that offshore storms and wind direction may also trigger a similar effect. For example for Punta del Este in Uruguay, when there are storms with a south wind, the waters rise and hit the rambla. In contrast when the storms are accompaied by a north wind, the water recedes.

But this time such a giant and widespread ocean receding effect is unprecedented!
