Big waves draw brave spectators to Middle Cove Beach
Huge waves continued to batter the east coast of Newfoundland on Friday, and many people were out getting a closer look.
An advisory issued earlier in the week was extended for east-facing coastlines, from the Bay of Exploits to the southern shore of the Avalon Peninsula.
A rapid increase in wave heights and pounding surf is expected to last into Saturday.
At Middle Cove Beach, there was a steady crowd of visitors all day Friday, with many people bringing cameras and binoculars to observe the pounding surf.
The huge waves are being caused by an intense low pressure system near Greenland.
Environment Canada says that people should exercise caution near the shorelines during high tides.
