Santa Cruz Harbor
California emergency officials said they hope to complete a tsunami damage estimate as early as next week to submit to the federal government in an aid request for wave-battered harbors.
Port Director Lisa Ekers revised her estimate to $22.5 million in tsunami-related damage to Santa Cruz Harbor, up from $17 million.
A California official on Monday estimated that statewide damage from last week’s tsunami triggered by a massive offshore earthquake near Japan exceeds $40 million.
Many people are without homes after their boats were either destroyed or swept away in Santa Cruz.
