Marshall Islands Rogue Waves Stir Online Concern

Unprecedented Calamity Strikes U.S. Military Site

In an unexpected turn of events, rogue waves slammed into a U.S. military site in the Marshall Islands, leaving destruction in their wake and prompting emergency evacuations. The incident, which occurred on January 20, 2024, was not a tsunami but a result of a unique combination of weather forces, including wind, tidal cycles, and swell direction.

Viral Video Sparks Global Worries

Aerial footage of the affected region in the Marshall Islands, particularly on Roi-Namur, one of the largest islands, has gone viral. The video captures the terrifying moment when powerful waves crashed into the U.S. Army’s dining hall on the northwest side of Roi-Namur, causing widespread destruction and compelling residents to evacuate.

Terrifying Scenes Unfold in Viral Footage


The widely circulated video, shared across social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and others, shows the relentless waves breaking doors, furniture, and even knocking down individuals within the building. As the water level rose, the lights went out, plunging everything into darkness. A spokesperson from the U.S. Army reported injuries, with one personnel being stable and treated at a nearby clinic. Fortunately, there are no official reports of missing persons or deaths at this time.

Concerns Rise as Emergency Operations Activate

Netizens worldwide expressed concern for the well-being of those affected. The U.S. Army Garrison promptly set up an Emergency Operations Cell to coordinate recovery efforts. An update on the official Facebook page reassured that all officials were accounted for, and non-essential personnel were evacuated to a nearby island.

Operation Roi Recovery Commences

The recovery mission, termed ‘Operation Roi Recovery,’ is underway, with a focus on evaluating the damage and restoring basic services. The priority is to clear the runway on Roi-Namur to facilitate the movement of personnel and equipment for recovery efforts. Col. Drew Morgan emphasized the importance of assessing runway safety and revealed that one-third of the area is still inundated, with extensive damage to infrastructure.

Extensive Damage and Long-Term Recovery

The aftermath of the cyclone-induced waves revealed significant damage, including military quarters, dining facilities, a chapel, Tradewinds theater, Outrigger Bar & Grill, and an automotive complex. The recovery process is expected to take several months to return the region to normalcy.

Expert Commentary on the Recovery Efforts

Col. Drew Morgan stated, “Clearing the runway on Roi-Namur and assessing its safety is our top priority now that we have evacuated personnel not required for the initial response efforts. Once the runway is open, we can move people and equipment back and forth to start the recovery process.”

Marshall Islands Unites for Recovery

The affected area, Roi-Namur, is part of the Kwajalein Atoll in the north of the Marshall Islands and serves as the base for the U.S. military’s space and missile defense test range. The recovery efforts involve a collaborative approach, with the U.S. Army and the U.S. Department of Defense working together to restore the region.
