Tsunami: No reports of damage in Laguna Beach
Two hours after the first tsunami-related waves hit Laguna Beach, there have been no reports of property damage or injury, Orange County officials said.
John McDonald, spokesman for the Emergency Operations Center of Orange County, said beaches along the entire Orange County coastline have been closed indefinitely.
"We're not expecting serious property damage but it's dangerous for people to be out in the water because the tidal wave could pull them in," McDonald said.
Businesses and residents on the Laguna Beach coastline were alerted at 5 a.m. via the Alert OC "reverse 911" system. A county hotline has been set up to handle questions from the community at (714) 628-7085.
