Despite blue skies, the ocean in Miami Beach appeared to remain under the control of the cataclysmic storm on Friday.

The monstrous “royal tide,” a non-scientific term used to describe exceptionally high tides, had merged with a rough surf.

The worrying combination is known to create dangerous water conditions and made it onto shore around 10.45am.

Dramatic footage captured the moment locals were washed off the sidewalk into the water as the rogue wave struck near South Pointe Park.

Four women and two men were injured in the incident and taken to hospital after being rescued by Ocean Rescue units.

They were “minorly injured” and the area is now closed until further notice, city spokeswoman Melissa Berthier said.

An eyewitness took photos of the incident, according to WSVN, showing victims with cuts on their arms and legs.

One person is said to have sustained a head injury.

Viewer Williams Schachte said, “I’ve never seen the water so turbulent.”

He had driven to the park with his pal Tim Carr after noticing the unruly waves from their condominium building.

Tim added, “‘I was really shocked. It’s kind of the perfect storm between royal tides this month and I think the remains of Ian.”

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue warned locals that entering the water is not safe and raised two red flags signifying the high surf recommendation.

Spokesperson Erika Benitez said: “It is strongly recommended that beachgoers understand the dangers associated with the royal tide such as: B. Currents and high surf conditions which can be very dangerous and sometimes fatal.”

The US Coast Guard said it has rescued 325 people and 83 pets so far.

Miami managed to avoid all of Hurricane Ian’s major impacts, but sea levels still rose up to two feet higher than normal.

The terrible storm made first landfall in Florida on Wednesday as a Category 4 hurricane, boosted by winds of 150 miles per hour.

DEADLY HURRICANE

Nearly 3 million residents were left without power while at least 23 people were killed by the deadly weather front.

The storm left a trail of destruction in the Sunshine State, knocking out power grids and submerging dozens of homes as officials begin the arduous task of identifying the dead.

Bodies were gruesomely pulled from their graves in Orlando as cemeteries across the state flooded.

A $1 million McLaren hypercar was ejected as the storm hit Cayo Costa, Florida.

Not to mention that before reaching the United States, the storm made landfall in Cuba and devastated the nation.

Hurricane Ian’s 125 mph winds left 11 million people without power across the country, causing a nearly nationwide blackout and massive flooding in many areas.

The storm made its second landfall in South Carolina on Friday with winds reaching 80 miles per hour and was downgraded to a Category 1 hurricane.

Around 700,000 homes and businesses lost power, but residents are thankfully spared the full ferocity of the storm.
