A monster wave of eight-floor high almost 78 foot (23.8 meters) was recorded by scientists in the southern hemisphere of New Zealand on Tuesday.
While the wave that struck near New Zealand and broke Southern Hemisphere records was certainly a powerful one, the strongest wave that has ever been recorded was set in Alaska in 1958 and measured 100 feet in height.
A buoy in the Southern Ocean may have recorded the Southern Hemisphere's tallest wave this week.
As the Earth continues to grow warmer, researchers believe we will be seeing more of these types of storms, according to MetOcean Solutions' Peter McComb, who personally set up the solar buoy that recorded the record-breaking wave in the Southern Ocean.
The huge wave was recorded by a buoy in the Southern Ocean near Campbell Island, around 700 kilometres (435 miles) south of New Zealand.
The record holder for waves worldwide, according to the World Meteorological Organization, is a 19-meter (62.3 feet) significant wave height measured by a buoy in the North Atlantic on February 4, 2013. "This is a very exciting event", MetOcean Solutions senior oceanographer Dr Tom Durrant said.

The storm also registered a "significant wave height" of 14.9 metres (48.9 feet) - that's the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) standard for measuring the volatility of the ocean, and means the average height of the highest third of measured waves.
