There was a tsunami warning for the U.S. West Coast on Friday, March 11th, 2011.  This was due to an 8.9 magnitude earthquake that struck Japan the previous night. There was damage to parts of Northern California, such as Crescent City. Our thoughts remain with the victims along the West Coast, in Japan, and in other areas impacted by the earthquake and resulting tsunami. Please see the links below for more information and news.
