CAPRI, Italy, Jan. 6 (UPI) -- A violent sea storm crashed into the Italian island of Capri Friday, creating waves nearly 10 feet high, officials said.

The water inundated beachfront property, flooding bars and restaurants, Italy's ANSA news agency reported.

High winds at sea made for choppy sailing conditions, interrupting ship lines from Naples and Sorrento. The only vessel to brave the waves Friday was a catamaran from the Snav line, carrying 70 commuters including a number of firefighters.
