From a local paper:
More than 30 boats were destroyed in Crescent City this morning after a tsunami triggered by a 8.9 magnitude Japanese earthquake hit the California and Oregon coasts.
“We had 30-plus boats totaled and our harbor and docks were extremely damaged,” said a very busy Del Norte County Sheriff’s Department dispatcher who identified himself as John at 10:15 a.m.
Fox just reported that four people were swept out to sea by the tsunami, which exceeded 8 feet, and that one is dead.
