Catastrophic failure of production platforms and pipelines due to seafloor displacement during infrequent large hurricanes such as Camille in 1969 and Ivan in 2004, point to cyclical loading of the seafloor by waves as a primary movement trigger.

... of storm flows ( Gordon, 1982 ). The offshore-trending bottom flow observed during the passage of Hurricane Camille in 1969 as documented by Murray (1970) is evidence that such a flow does indeed occur in nature. However, to view this two-layer flow as a simple wind-forced current system is clearly...

Hurricane Camille in 1969 was perhaps the worst hurricane to ever strike the U.S. coast, and in addition to extensive destruction and loss of lives, the Harrison County sand beach was greatly eroded (although the seawall withstood the storm relatively well ( Sullivan, 1985 ).
