The tsunami swept out to sea at least five people watching the waves from the US West Coast. Four people were later rescued from the water off the coast of Oregon, but one man is still missing off northern California. The tsunami shook loose boats in that were not moved in time and tore apart wooden docks in at least two California harbours.

The small fishing town of Fort Bragg has had its docks ripped apart and filled with debris by the tsunami, the LA Times reports.
