  • Tsunami waves hit Ore. coast after sweeping Hawaii

    HONOLULU (AP) — The first waves from a tsunami caused by a Japanese earthquake have reached the U.S. mainland along the Oregon coast.

    Geophysicist Gerard Fryer at the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Honolulu says high water reached Port Orford, Ore., around 7:30 a.m. PST Friday.

    Officials along the coast activated warning sirens hours earlier to alert people to leave low-lying areas.

    The National Weather Service says some of the biggest waves of between 6 and 7 feet were expected to hit near Crescent City, Calif.

  • Tsunami kills hundreds

    TOKYO— A ferocious tsunami unleashed by Japan’s biggest recorded earthquake slammed into its eastern coast Friday, killing hundreds of people as it carried away ships, cars and homes, and triggered widespread fires that burned out of control.

    Hours later, the tsunami hit Hawaii but did not cause major damage. Warnings blanketed the Pacific, putting areas on alert as far away as South America, Canada, Alaska and the entire U.S. West coast. In northeastern Japan, the area around a nuclear power plant was evacuated after the reactor’s cooling system failed.
