China tidal bore: Huge waves roar up the Qiantang River

More than 100,000 people flocked to Haining city, in east China’s Zhejiang Province, to witness spectacular huge waves moving up the Qiantang River. The world’s largest tidal bore lasts for about a week every year during the Mid-Autumn Festival, when the gravitational pull of the moon and the sun on the tide is the strongest. When the tide hits the bottleneck at the river’s estuary, waves are pushed upstream. Waves up to two meters high were seen on Sunday – the biggest so far this year. Local authorities are urging people to stay safe.
