Santa Cruz Tsunami Damage
A boat sinks into the ocean in the aftermath of the surge caused by a tsunami on the harbor in Santa Cruz, Calif., Friday, March 11, 2011. A ferocious tsunami unleashed by Japan's biggest recorded earthquake slammed into its eastern coast Friday, killing hundreds of people as it carried away ships, cars and homes, and triggered widespread fires that burned out of control. Hours later, the waves washed ashore on Hawaii and the U.S. West coast, where evacuations were ordered from California to Washington but little damage was reported. The entire Pacific had been put on alert _ including coastal areas of South America, Canada and Alaska _ but waves were not as bad as expected. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)

    I am amazed at how little information is in this report. Lots of pictures of boats that were tossed about, but not even a picture of the height of the wave in Santa Cruz or Crescent City. Not even a mention in the text of the height when it finally reached here.

      because Tsunami means Tsu- Harbor Wave, the people of the united states have been mislead for 100’s of years of poor quality teachers in our college system. They have made it sound like a tidal wave that destroys. Wrong again.
      These are surgeing waves that are not very high its a rolling effect!
