    Thank you Twitch! For some reason my video isn't working (says update flash but won't load) so these pics are good.

    OMG horrendous!

    We had huge flooding here a few years ago and the force and speed of the water is terrifying. What we experienced looks like nothing compared to that video above. Wow, those poor people. How terrifying. We have family friends in Saipan and it doesn't sound like they are being told to evacuate yet.

    I literally shouted OMG after watching the cars trying to drive away from the massively encroaching waves. Big time prayers

    I was watching it last night on the 11pm news and it just blew my mind seeing those waves coming and coming inland onto flat farm land destroying everything in their path. amazing.

    my heart goes out to all of those who lost their life in such a horrible way and to their family and loved ones.

    Crescent City, CA Harbor Destroyed

    Officials in Crescent City are reporting damage after tsunami waves began hitting the harbor this morning.
    ”The harbor has been destroyed,” said Crescent City Councilman Rich Enea in a phone interview at 9:45 a.m. “Thirty-five boats have been crushed and the harbor has major damage. Major damage.”
    Del Norte County Sheriff Cmdr. Bill Steven said most of the docks at the harbor are gone. Additionally, a recent surge filled the entire harbor and they are expecting that some of the other waves could send water into the harbor's parking lot, Steven said.
    Enea said no injuries have been reported at this point, which he attributed to plenty of tsunami preparedness exercises and the diligent work of first responders in sealing off the harbor.
    The councilman said he's heard about 100 people have shown up to a Red Cross shelter at Del Norte High School. He said tsunami waters have made it near the doors of the Crescent City Cultural Center, and he fears the worst is yet to come.
    ”There's supposed to be larger surges coming in,” he said. “We're just trying to ride out the worst of these surges.”
    According to the Caltrans website, some sections of U.S. Highway 101 are currently closed due to the tsunami alert: at Kane Road that is 11.3 miles north of Trinidad, at the Humboldt and Del Norte county lines, at Sand Mine Road that is 1.4 miles south of Crescent City, and at Washington Road that is 1.2 miles north of Crescent City. Drivers are advised to use alternate routes.
