Tsunami: Coast Guard seeking man swept out to sea
The man was taking photographs of the waves when he and two other men were swept up in the current, said Coast Guard Lt. Todd Vorenkamp. The two others were able to swim to safety, but the third was not.
The Coast Guard is using boats and aircraft to search for the victim, Vorenkamp said.
The incident occurred at the mouth of the Klamath River, which is a popular beach and public recreation area, Vorenkamp said. He said a tsunami warning remains in effect there.
A tsunami warning remains in effect until 6 p.m.
Crescent City and Fort Bragg were the two cities hit hardest by a tsunami caused by the 1964 earthquake in Alaska.
