Tsunami aftermath

Well the warning was cancelled at 0200. My observations showed that it was not as bad as the last one. High water indications were lower, and visible surge was way less. We did have a couple of boats that took some damage. There was not enough time for some owners to respond and either haul out boats or depart the harbor, as a result a couple of them parted moorings and hit the dock.

The advisory was cancelled at 0500, and the beach parks were finally opened at 1100.

All is back to normal now.
