One thought on “Crescent City, California, Some California Beaches Closed For Tsunami

    In Crescent City, Calif., miles to the south, the Coast Guard searched for a man who was swept out to sea. He was taking photos near the mouth of the Klamath River. Two people with him jumped in to rescue him. They were able to get back to land, authorities said.

    Sheriff’s deputies went door to door at dawn to urge residents to seek higher ground.

    An 8-foot wave rushed into the harbor, destroying about 35 boats and ripping chunks off the wooden docks, as marina workers and fishermen scrambled between surges to secure property. Officials estimated millions of dollars in damage.

    When the water returned, someone would yell “Here comes another one!” to clear the area.

    Ted Scott, a retired mill worker who lived in the city when a 1964 tsunami killed 17 people on the West Coast, including 11 in Crescent City, watched the water pour into the harbor.

    “This is just devastating. I never thought I’d see this again,” he said. “I watched the docks bust apart. It buckled like a graham cracker.”

    The waves, however, had not made it over a 20-foot break wall protecting the rest of the city. No serious injuries were immediately reported.
