    Beach Evacs in Newport

    Lifeguards in Newport Beach are asking people to get off the sand and out of the water, and are asking that they not venture past the boardwalk. (Source: scanner transmissions)

    Laguna beach webcam shows higher waves coming right now

    Post  Sheila, Or. on Sat 27 Feb 2010, 8:14 pm

    waves should start coming in about 12:25pm PST so am going to watch Laguna beach live webcam to see how it goes. NPR reports they expect a 3.3ft tsunami at Santa Monica peer.
    I'm wondering if it's high, low tide? Low tide, good, high tide not so much. Well here's what they say:

    Earthquake-generated waves about 40 inches high may wash ashore at Santa Monica beginning at 12:25 p.m. local time Saturday, and bigger waves may follow that, the West Coast/Alaska Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer, Alaska, said today.

    Waves larger than two feet will brush up California's coast starting at the Mexican border at precisely noon, hit the Los Angeles harbor entrance at 12:15, and wash ashore at Santa Monica and Malibu at about 12:25.

    Local undersea conditions will cause the tsunami to vary in height between 24-40 inches at various locations along the Southern California coast, according to U.S. government oceanographers. But the regular cycle of tides will be nearing a low ebb when the waves are expected, perhaps sparing low- lying areas from inundation.

    Buoys off the coast of Central America have led the Tsunami Center to warn Californians that "potential tsunami wave heights to range from two to three feet across some coastal areas."

    "Peak wave heights will likely occur around two hours after the initial wave arrival," the National Weather Service in Oxnard predicted.

    Per Huntington Beach Lifeguard, "Be advised, there was a bit of a surge a few minutes ago."

    not much happening there now at all. Actually, I saw it surge up toward the beach then nothing so far. CNN is giving great coverage of Hilo, HI now though.
