When the freak phenomenon gets a freaking name ...

The name given to the swelling of the sea in the southern coast of India.
In local language it means the sea that arrives like a thief unannounced.
Recent studies attribute this phenomenon to Remote forcing(see below).

Remote Forcing

  • Storms in Antarctica causes swells which travel northwards in Indian Ocean
  • Meets a southward moving current in the Indian Ocean
  • Increasing the wave setup in the southern coast of India.
