These benches sit along a bike trail on the Seward Waterfront. The bike trail should be visible in the photo, but it is buried under a foot of water, mud and rocks. This wave actually broke over the tops of the benches, I had to run back to keep dry. Large rocks were washed up on to the Sealife Center’s parking lot. The forces of nature are amazing.
I guess we didn’t have it that bad. According the the Anchorage Daily News, a Coast Guard Station much further West from here measured wind speeds of up to 178 mph!
