Any Theories about the rapid tidal fluctuations in Maine?

@Letty,
So, do you know if the military (or any other group) ever retrieved the alleged meteorite? Seems they'd be interested in doing so.

@littlek,
If they have, I don't know about it, but funny things can happen at NASA that the ordinary person isn't privy to.

@Letty,
of course..... Only science has been interested in studying meteors for a while now. Now, if it were space junk, as in a falling spy satellite......

@littlek,
There were several earthquakes on October 28 in the world, including the huge 6.4 earthquake in Pakistan (which was not seaside, and did not create a tsunami) but also including a 6.0 on the coast of New Guinea, and quakes above 5.0 in the Philipines, Figi, and the day before in Philipines and Indonesia.

Since the waves can 'travel' quite a long time ... ?

At least this phenomena isn't really that unknown: you get huge waves in the and with a high high tide in the Bay of Biscay and some land places there .... days to week after there has been a storm in the Irish Sea or even North Sea. (I've witnessed 15 m high waves -aboard- during sunniest weather and calm.

@Walter Hinteler,
I heard that Oprah got so excited about the polls she did a cannonball off her yacht.

@Walter Hinteler,
i've also read somewhere that strong underwater currents - several hundred feet below ocean surface - can cause coastal surges when these underwater currents hit the coast line or encounter currents of a different temperature .
we have noticed that in lake ontario during the fall - when air temperatures are falling - water may "erupt" or have a "crown" even in the absence of any wind . those water disturbances just roll along the the lake surface for no visible reason .
similarly the lake water starts "to boil" in the fall when air temperatures are falling ; it's like looking into a pot of boiling water . of course , the overall water temperature is low , but the different temperature levels within the lake make the water look like it's "boiling" when the different masses of water are mixing (the differences in water temperatures between various water levels may be minute , but the mixing makes it look like some strange event is taking place .
after living along lake ontario for some years , we've gotten used to it - nothing unusual any more .

I misread the title of this thread as "Any Theories about the rapid tidal fluctuations in Mame?" and I said to myself, "What is that girl up to now?"

@Letty,
In Clive Cussler's book Fire Ice (http://www.cusslermen.com/fireice.htm) that I read in the Summer, the bad guys set off an underwater explosion of methane hydrate off the coast of Maine that destroys the waterfront of a small harbor town he calls "Rock Harbor". I wonder if he gave someone an idea?
