Small Tsunami Hits California
CRESCENT CITY, Calif. The small tsunami surge from a Japanese earthquake has reached California, damaging docks and boats in the Crescent City Harbor near the Oregon state line.
Paul McAndrews, harbor facilities manager, says the harbor was hit with a series of surges that would cycle about every 15 minutes, changing the water level about five feet each time.
The National Weather Service estimates the surges reached speeds of 30 miles an hour. McAndrews says the repeated battering pulled apart at least two docks and set boats adrift, which banged into each other. He estimated that two dozen or more boats were damaged, but none were sunk and no one was hurt.
Goes to show we are vulnerable in the U.S. to larger ones, too.

10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord.
