Operation Bold Alligator Begins:
"It is the largest amphibian exercise seen in the West for a decade, staged to simulate a potential Iranian invasion of an allied Persian Gulf country
and a marine landing on the Iranian coast. Based largely on US personnel and hardware, French, British, Italian, Dutch, Australian and New Zealand
military elements are integrated in the drill. "
Don't know if this would have anything to do with what you are seeing but it is worrying.

TextBold Alligator went into its operational phase Monday, Feb. 6, the same day as a large-scale exercise began in southern Iran opposite the Strait
of Hormuz. This simultaneity attests to the preparations for a US-Iranian showdown involving Israel behind the words on Feb. 5 of US President Barack
Obama ("I don't think Israel has decided whether to attack Iran") and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Feb. 3 ("The war itself will be ten times as
detrimental to the US."). Monday, Feb. 6, the US president ordered the tightening of sanctions by freezing Iranian assets in America and blocking the
operations of Iranian banks including its central bank.
