A massive fog bank off the New Jersey coast gave the eerie appearance of an approaching tsunami, the UPI reported Wednesday.
Captain Jim Freda of the Sea Girt Lifeguards shot photos of the behemoth weather phenomenon that sat along the coastline on Sunday following massive storms in the area.
The U.S. National Weather Service explained what happened in a Facebook post on Monday:
"No, this is not a tsunami but a fog bank off the Jersey coast. Formed by warm air condensing over cold ocean water, this photo [at top] taken by Sea Girt lifeguards is one to show your friends…
"While there seemed to be plenty of sunshine off and on through the day, the fog remained just offshore over the water. [In a satellite image] you can clearly see the sea breeze moving inland with fog lining the coastal areas of New Jersey."
But at first glace, it's a scary sight.
