O'Connell described the piece of rock that fell as being as big as a four-storey building, crashing down onto the beach. Meanwhile, some boats were capsizing in the strong waves.

"So far, we haven't found any trapped people but we will continue searching", a fire brigade official said.

Authorities were seeking to determine whether there were any people missing. Rescue services employed sniffer dogs to search the beach itself for possible victims of the rockfall. According to the Associated Press, the incident began when a large chunk of limestone fell from a cliff into the ocean, creating a large wave that caused several small boats to capsize.

British woman Wendy Thorpe said she was on a boat with her daughter when the cliff collapsed and there was an "almighty crash".
