Huge waves and 60 mile per hour winds were too scary for drivers in Seattle, Washington.

About 50 people had to put their cars in park and abandon them on the 520 Floating Bridge on Saturday.

They told officers they could feel the bridge moving back and forth, about 4 to 5 feet.

Once the winds died down a bit, troopers escorted the drivers back onto the bridge so they could get their cars.
