Giant waves invade Garachico after an unexpected rise in the sea this morning

The State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) has put La Palma and the north of Tenerife on a yellow notice for coastal phenomena from 10:00 am this Friday until 11:59 pm. What no one had foreseen is that the bad state of the sea and the high tide would cause giant waves to enter the main avenue at 4 in the morning, taking everything away and causing significant damage.
