1 Missing, 4 Rescued As Tsunami Hits West Coast
Friday, March 11, 2011
The Coast Guard is searching for a man swept out to sea in Northern California while taking pictures of tsunami waves.
Nearby, authorities in Brookings, Ore., say four people have survived after a tsunami surge swept them off a beach in Curry County and into the sea.
The five were on the beach Friday to watch the waves generated by a massive earthquake in Japan. The Curry County sheriff's department says two were able to get out of the water on their own, and two were rescued by law enforcement and fire officials.
