Edward and Nancy Bemis won't soon forget it. After watching the waves crashing on the shoreline for the better part of two hours Saturday morning, Edward Bemis said the one that hit them stood out as particularly forceful as it approached. As Edward Bemis urged his wife to "catch the wave" with her video camera, disaster struck.
A former Navy man, Edward Bemis said the raging approach of the ocean was like nothing he’s ever seen in his life, even throughout his days stationed out at sea.
“It was a titanic wave,” he said. “It was bigger than the house, bigger than the doors. Everything was everywhere. It shows you the power of Mother Nature.”
