A storm surge on Saturday sent rogue waves in the south Pacific, swamping a US Army-Garrison facility on the Marshall Islands.
US Army Garrison-Kwajalein Atoll and the US Space and Missile Defense Command’s Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Defense Test Site operate on Roi-Namur island, the second-largest island of the Kwajalein Atoll, about 2,000 miles from Hawaii.
Photos show the extensive damage to the base’s facilities, home to about 120 people, by the sudden swells.
