Unusual giant waves in Mexico

An equatorial marine counter-current is causing problems for beach-bound tourists and locals along the pacific coast of Guerrero state, western Mexico.

“On Saturday, on Icacos beach at the tourist resort of Acapulco, two women were swept away by a wave when they were walking along the sand. On Friday, at El Carrizal beach in Coyuca de Benitez, 40 kilometers (25 miles) from Acapulco, three people, among them a young boy, were carried away by a large wave and drowned.” In response, Mexico’s Civil Protection Secretariat has closed several beaches to the public.
