Hurricane Fiona Stirs Up Atlantic Ocean Off Nantucket

Hurricane Fiona caused dangerous storm swells and surf for parts of the northeastern United States coastline as the storm continued on its path northward to Canada on September 23, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.

Blair Perkins said he captured this footage near Madaket Beach in Nantucket, Massachusetts, on Friday.

The National Weather Service (NWS) warned that the large waves could “become a hazard to anyone viewing the large surf from rocks, jetties, and any other near-shore structures,” and encouraged any spectators to watch a safe distance from shore. Credit: Blair Perkins via Storyful
