Was just checking the RSOE EDIS and saw this......not really sure what to make of it though. Don't know the meaning of a Giant Wave Impact but would figure if it has impacted already it would have made news.

Anyone shed light on this for me?

I found a news article on it. Rogue wave. 10-15 m high. It hit a cargo ship carrying logs. www.vancouversun.com...

It has pictures of damage to the ship, but all of the crew are okay.
Apparently they encounter waves like this once or twice a year? Bad timing for this one.

A rogue wave had pummelled the ship's left, or port, side and caused many of the raw logs on the deck to shift toward the starboard side. None of the 23 Filipino crew aboard the 26,000-ton vessel was hurt. The damaged vessel limped into port at Ogden Point in Victoria on Sunday, escorted from the high seas by U.S. and Canadian coast guard vessels. The wave that slammed into the port side was 10-to-15 metres high, said Capt. Jostein Hoddevik, principal surveyor with IMS Marine Surveyors of Burnaby. "It would have a lot of water behind it, a lot of force," Hoddevik said at Ogden Point on Monday.


That comes from the description tab of the same thing. RSOE is bad about that... The default open screen says almost nothing at all. It takes the Descrip tab to even get a basic idea of what they are reporting. It sounds like that was quite a wave though.

Here's some info for you:

c4i.me...


The 186-metre cargo ship Dry Beam is moored at Ogden Point, its massive vertical support beams bent like matchsticks and its load of logs shoved askew by a rogue wave on the North Pacific. The vessel was en route to Japan from Longview, Washington, when it ran into trouble, lost some logs and issued a mayday call Thursday night about 480 kilometres off northern Vancouver Island. A rogue wave had pummelled the ship's left, or port, side and caused many of the raw logs on the deck to shift toward the starboard side. None of the 23 Filipino crew aboard the 26,000-ton vessel was hurt. The damaged vessel limped into port at Ogden Point in Victoria on Sunday, escorted from the high seas by U.S. and Canadian coast guard vessels. The wave that slammed into the port side was 10-to-15 metres high, said Capt. Jostein Hoddevik, principal surveyor with IMS Marine Surveyors of Burnaby. "It would have a lot of water behind it, a lot of force," Hoddevik said at Ogden Point on Monday.

There is a little red bar that shows damage on the link you listed RSOE EDIS, it says the damage was minor. I'm sure the sea level must have just risen above average. I'm not located over there, but I assume it was just a blip on the radar.

I have relatives on the coast of Vancouver Island as well as on the mainland and I haven't heard anything. My dad's a pretty big strange weather guy and he would normally call me if something was going on. He walks the sea walk in Vancouver every day and if the waves are too big they shut it down so no one gets washed away. Usually the Island takes the brunt of any bad weather or larger waves that come in from that side but I have no new info otherwise

I guess that depends on what they mean by giant.

Interesting report, but seriously lacking in details.

Are we talking massive tsunami, or just a large wave spotted, that doesn't indicate considerable water movement?

That story says it occurred Thursday while the RSOE reports today. Do they usually wait a few days or is it that it dissipated so far out that the only record they had was the ship coming in and reporting it so they put it up on RSOE today?

That's a good point. The location of the links both match up. My guess would be that it was just reported today, but I could be wrong. (i dont know how the reporting on that website works, but i'd definitely stay away from that place if there were 2 waves that big within a few days of each other.)

This is a small event that happened at sea, it has no effect on bigger areas.

When your at sea, and the conditions are right, you can be unlucky to meat a "wrong wave"( Don't know the english wording for it).
It's more waves that merges in to one giant.

It's a wave that can knock the air out of any ship, and create big damage, or send it to the bottom of the ocean.
I have personaly meet this kind of wave 2 times, and can tell you it's a scary moment.

Both times with major damage, but could make it to habour by our self.

RSOE is more an event information site, than a news site, so you wont see breaking news right away.

The vessel was in the wrong place at the wrong time, he said. "The timing of the wave would be crucial." Cargo vessels are damaged by waves like this off the West Coast once or twice a year, he said. Sometimes the damage is relatively minor and the vessel can continue on to its destination. At times, the vessel must return to port for repairs.

Ah, I think in the U.S. the term "rogue wave" is used.

Which is very different from a tsunami.

well.. perhaps.. but here's something of note as of Dec 2011...(emphasis mine)


Five meter waves hit three sub- districts in Thailand's southern Chumpon province's Langsuan district on Sunday noon, destroying several houses, bungalows and restaurants and forcing local residents to flee their homes. The seawater also flooded Hua Lame village in Langsuan district with approximate height of 70 centimeter, forcing people to evacuate to a temple seen as a safe shelter.

According to chief of Bangmaprao Tambon Administrative Office, huge waves lashed many villages in three sub-districts slightly before noon. As a result, several bungalows and restaurants were devastated while some people's houses swept away. Chumpon Meteorological Station director-general Decha Sukgaeo said that the intense high pressure from China has moved to cover the southern region, causing rain storms and high waves in the area during Dec. 25-28. Small fishing trawlers should remain onshore, he warned. [link to hisz.rsoe.hu]

Rogue waves usually occur in the open seas and only one at a time. They can occur in calm weather. They are currently impossible to predict and extremely rare that I wouldn't be surprised even if an observant guy such as your dad missed it.
