      Surfers in southern California took advantage of unusually large surf in Newport Beach on August 27, where a huge swell from Hurricane Marie was expected to generate waves as big as 25 feet. The National Weather Service issued a high surf advisory, warning that the swell, which has been described as the largest in a decade, would cause dangerous rip tides and possible flooding. This video captures surfers at the Wedge, in Newport Beach, a known surf spot which was expected to see the biggest swells. Credit: YouTube/OnychaHazel

                  Pod Of Pilot Whales Stranded Off Everglades Nat’l Park December 4, 2013 HIGHLAND BEACH (CBSMiami) – Marine experts are trying to figure out what’s causing a pod of whales to beach themselves along Florida’s Southwest coast off Everglades National Park. The pod of what’s believed to be short-finned pilot whales is swimming in shallow water about three-quarters of a mile off the shoreline of Highland Beach in Monroe County, about 1 and a half to two hour ride from the nearest boat ramp.

Federal officials said some whales have died. The marine mammals are known to normally inhabit deep water. (AP Photo/National Park Service)
