Tsunami: L.A. County beaches getting back to normal

March 11, 2011 |  6:00 pm

Things are slowing getting back to normal at L.A. County beaches after officials closed off much of the coast because of a tsunami from the destructive earthquake off Japan.

Most beaches and marinas are back to normal operations, according to the Coast Guard.

"Santa Barbara and King Harbor marinas remain closed to vessel traffic due to occasional but less intense tidal surges," the statement said. "Operations in the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach have returned to normal after the Coast Guard Captain of the Port temporarily suspended oil transferring operations. "

Many beaches in Orange County also have reopened.
