The tsunami effect

TV presenter Ben Fogle was on Saltburn beach in Cleveland today taking part in the filming and production of a new 4-part documentary from Sky TV and National Geographic Channel showcasing the darker side of Mother Nature.

The effects of a Tsunami wave hitting the coast were recreated on Saltburn pier using a tank of water to simulate the wave and the potential damage that could be caused to a vehicle by the power of water was demonstrated by dropping around a tonne of water from a crane onto the vehicle which had been placed on the beach next to the pier.

Filming in the town is expected to take around two days and the four-part ‘Storm City’ series, which will air later in the summer, has been filmed on numerous locations throughout the world including Canada and the UK.
