While our hopes and prayers are with those who are still recovering from the devastation of the tsunami in Japan, site even across the huge Pacific ocean, recipe our very own little harbor in Santa Barbara felt some effects of the massive disaster.
Our usually calm harbor was battered by waves at least ten times stronger than usual. Thankfully there was only little damage, generic where as other California harbors were much more affected. Interestingly enough, the waves were not the most unusual effect of the tsunami. The tide itself was changing at an absolutely amazing rate, sometimes a few feet within less than thirty minutes. These photos submitted by Jon Shafer to local news website Edhat.com help illustrate the incredibly change.
