70-foot rogue wave pounds cargo ship


For the "Big Wave" file. A 70-foot rogue wave reported here:
A rogue wave, reported to be as high as 70 feet, smashed through the bridge windows of 440-foot-long container ship in the Pacific Ocean on Sunday night, knocking out electronics, and forcing the ship to dock for repairs at Coos Bay.

At least one of the Westwood Pomona's 22 crew members was slightly injured...


Photo of ship is when it had a previous owner.

UPDATE: Previous posts on rogue waves here and here. Many interesting links therein.
