Waves slam restaurants at Jeddah Corniche


JEDDAH — High waves crashed into restaurants on the Jeddah Corniche on Tuesday due to a rise in the sea level viral videos circulated on social media show, Al Arabiya English reported on Wednesday.

In one video, a woman seems to be walking to her table in the restaurant, when a massive wave broke the restaurant’s barrier and reached her as she moved further away from it.

Social media users called the rise “scary” and “similar to a Tsunami.”

Jeddah’s General Department of Traffic had warned drivers about the waves, suggesting a temporary reroute, after the levels had risen for the first time and reached the corniche road.
