Incredible footage shows monster waves in Lake Superior lashing coast during storm

Crashing waves pound the autumn-hued North Shore of Lake Superior, Minnesota, as a strong storm sweeps through the area. In the footage, the waves unrelentingly batter the cliffs and heavy winds disperse a dense layer of mist over the surrounding trees. "We witnessed 20+ foot waves," said the filmer. "Sustained winds topped 45 mph, and a wind gust of 86 mph was recorded near our shooting locations. (Hurricane force winds start at 74 mph.)" Although Hurricane Michael hit the Florida Coast the same day, October 10, this was a separate storm. However, it is possible that the hurricane carried moisture or other storm features north as it approached the US.

Wild New Zealand wood pigeon is drunk on forest berries

A woodpigeon native to New Zealand called the Kereru drunkenly sways upside-down from a branch in the breeze. The bird is known for gorging itself on fermented forest berries, and occasionally falling out of trees afterwards. The Kereru was recently named New Zealand's 2018 "bird of the year". Conservation group Forest and Bird, which spearheaded the competition, termed the creature “clumsy, drunk, gluttonous and glamorous.” The filmer captured the footage in September last year in Waingaro.

Driver miraculously survives after train hits car at level crossing2m08s

Driver miraculously survives after train hits car at level crossing

This is the dramatic moment a speeding train ploughed into a car after the driver fell asleep at a level crossing. The 46-year-old woman driver named Chen approached the crossing with her female passenger - who both survived the accident in Hsinchu City, Taiwan, on May 2. Chen failed to notice red warning lights when she stopped in a queue of traffic, with another car in front of them. They were positioned directly over the train tracks when Chen - who told police she was tired - briefly nodded off behind the wheel. She finally roused herself but it was too late and she was unable to drive through as the barrier had already come down. Camera footage from the vehicle in front shows how she tried to reverse to create an angle to move through the gap. The female passenger then jumped out of the car to make a dash for the emergency release button on the barriers. Moments later, the Puyuma express train 110 came speeding along and smashed into the car. Amazingly, the driver was able to climb out of their wrecked minicar with only minor cuts and the passenger also escaped unhurt. However, authorities have now fined Chen 15,000 Taiwanese dollars (370GBP) over the level crossing accident. Her license will also be suspended for one year.
