Sea Foam Blankets Irish Village Following Strong Winds

White sea foam covered the village of Bunmahon in Waterford, Ireland, on Sunday, February 14, following days of high winds.

Local resident Jody Sutton recorded footage of the foam coating buildings and roads in the seaside village.

Speaking to Storyful, Sutton said he had never seen that amount of sea foam before.

“The foam happens when rough seas churn up all the organic matter in the water and a foam is caused,” he said. “In this case, the onshore winds were consistent for a number of days causing the village to get covered.” Credit: Jody Sutton via Storyful
