Tsunami: Santa Cruz harbor dock destroyed, man swept out to sea near Klamath River

Published Friday December 9

One person is missing near the mouth of the Klamath River and one of the docks and a number of boats at the Santa Cruz harbor were destroyed Fri as tsunami waves generated from a powerful earthquake in Japan hit Northern California. Hundreds of people were evacuated from the coast and were cautioned not to return until the tsunami threat subsides.

The Eureka Times Standard reported the unidentified man and 2 friends reportedly traveled to the shoreline to take photos of the incoming waves when all 3 were swept out to sea. 2 of the men were able to get safely back to shore.

‘There’s some genuine damage being done here,” Coonerty said.
