Tsunami damage at Santa Cruz harbor

The tsunami generated by the 8.9 earthquake off the coast of Japan ripped through the Santa Cruz Harbor repeatedly for twelve hours Friday.

Dozens of boats sank and many others were damaged, several docks were destroyed and the resulting debris sloshed back and forth through the harbor all day, causing even more damage to boats and harbor facilities.

Harbor officials estimate $15 million damage to harbor facilities.
