Crescent City Lighthouse, California

Crescent City California is one of the few American Cities to have experienced a Tsunami/Tidal Wave. 1964 brought a major sea surge to Crescent City which inundated the downtown area and killed four people.

The huge cement breakwater from which this picture was taken was built after 1964 in an effort to make subsequent destruction unlikely. It also offers great views of the lighthouse, huge waves, and giant cement dolos which help disperse the energy of the mighty pacific waves.

For more about this area see our Northern California travel pages.

I never knew this before. I thought tsunamis only happened in foreign lands, not the USA. Good job on the research and for sharing. Learned something today. Thanks!
