WATCH: 'Tsunami-like' waves flood Mallorca beach

A freak wave was seen smashing into the boardwalk at Puerto de Alcudia in Mallorca, flooding restaurants and covering beachside roads.

On the west coast of Menorca waves measuring almost five feet crashed into tourist beaches, according to local media reports.

The phenomenon is known as a “meteotsunami“ and is caused by rapid changes in barometric pressure resulting in a sudden displacement of a body of water.
