A record-high wave has been measured off the Irish coast near the height of a severe North Atlantic storm.
The height of Tuesday's monster wave was pegged at 20.4 meters, or 67 feet, the BBC said late Tuesday. The wave was measured by a sensor located off Donegal in the northern Republic of Ireland.
The instigating storm center was skirting northern Ireland, making its way toward northern Scotland, at the time the giant wave was recorded.
Some of the mighty waves heaped up at sea by Tuesday's gale also found their way to the Irish coast, such as the one captured on this video from Mullaghmore, in County Sligo.
