Tsunami video: Time-lapse images show California coast under siege [Video]
Time-lapse videos are emerging showing the tsunami waves generated by the Japanese earthquake arriving at various points along the California coast on Friday.
The classic tsunami pattern -- tides receding and surging -- was most noticable along the coast of Northern California, such as at Santa Cruz, Fort Bragg and Crescent City, which sustained damage to boats and docks.
The tsunami caused least $50 million in damage in the state. It's going to go up," Lori Dengler, a geology professor and director of the Humboldt Earthquake Education Center at Humboldt State. "How far up, I'm not going to predict. This is an expensive event for California."
