Wild waves brought on by the severe storm were seen crashing into the building as high as the third floor, wiping out the railings of balconies. The authorities had to restrict access to some 67 apartments in Mesa del Mar as the cyclone battered the north of Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands. 

A total of 39 people were evacuated from two separate locations on the island as the turbulent sea battered its coast. Some 15 evacuees left the apartment block featured in the videos, according to local media. Another 24 people were evacuated from a building in Garachico as water levels rose inside, damaging an elevator.

There are no reported injuries, but the government and emergency services remain on alert.
