Strong winds and storms have been battering Southwest Florida all day Thursday… And this terrifying video shows one of the resulting waves slamming into a beachfront property in Sanibel… Like a tsunami:
The original video was take by Victoria Mancha, an employee at Castaways Beach and Bay Cottages on the north end of Sanibel:

“We just weren’t expecting anything like that. It was just very bizarre,” he added.
The National Weather Service has issued a High Surf Advisory and High Rip Current Risk for much of the Southwest Florida coast, including Lee County and Sanibel, until 9pm Saturday.
