Tsunami warning: Long Beach live-aboards wait for arrival
At Shoreline Marina in Long Beach, live-aboards emerged from their boats in advance of a local tsunami warning in the wake of the 8.9 earthquake in Japan.
Myron Terry, 39, an electrician from Cocoa Beach, Fla. staying on his friend's 30-foot sailboat Blue Moon while on vacation, heard news of the warning soon after waking up and was keeping a safe distance from the marina's waters, which remained calm as of 8:25 a.m.
"We're kind of waiting to see what happens," he said from a nearby parking lot, not far from the docked cruise ship Carnival Paradise and the Queen Mary. "If that cruise ship still has its gangway attached I think we'll be all right."
