Amazing surge / surf on Rio beaches in Ipanema and Leblon this past weekend. Check out the videos from this Instagram link:

I believe São Paulo was effected earlier last week.

Reminds me of the tsunami that hit parts of Southeast Asia in 2004 +/-, though at a different scale. That one was caused by an earthquake in the seabed. What cause the surge in Rio?

Same storm that rocked São Paulo (knocked out power, 7 deaths) worked its way towards Rio:

An extratropical cyclone. Extratropical cyclones are centers of low atmospheric pressure that form in medium and high latitudes, outside the tropics, due to the contrast between a cold air mass and a warm air mass. They are associated with a cold front and their winds are weaker and shorter than tropical cyclones.
