High Waves Appearing on Fujairah Beach

At 1.00pm Wednesday 6 June 2007 the tide was surging powerfully onto the Fujairah beach.

The waves were much higher than at seven this morning.

The established breakwaters are being breached in places as well as the first row of the beach barricades that were constructed yesterday.

Residents from homes on the beach were standing on the balconies willing the cyclone to alter its course.

It feels like the wind is starting to get up.
