Out in the North Sea the waves can get large. Large enough to rock a massive oil platform that stands 100 foot above the surface of the ocean and weighs almost 15,000 gross tonnes.

As huge waves crashed against a swaying oil rig, one nearby worker managed to catch the entire harrowing ordeal on camera. that were a result of the recent weekend's severe storm.

The storm lasted about two day and was so strong that power was cut to approximately 140,000 properties in Northern Scotland at its worst.
