It's been two months since the Japan quakes and the tsunami that "could" have hit Southern California and San Diego. It hit elsewhere north of us, to varying degrees of damage, loss and injury...I went out to the beach in Ocean Beach with a camcorder to catch the tsunami, and found several hundred people waiting for the same, despite the danger. Several police officers on bikes and in cars wre there, plus a few news cameras. Apparently the same situational gathering of looky-loos were seen in Pacific Beach, Coronado, La Jolla, Solana, etc.

Here are some of the videos:

the only way san diego will really ever get a tsunami to wash up on shore--and not simply the receding waterline--will be after an earthquake in Alaska or on the West Coast of the US... Otherwise, it won't happen.

i remember after the Chile earthquake, we had the tsunami watch. And i found myself at Loma (pt loma) with family. talk about a low tide! i could see the oceanfloor from main parts of campus (which is usually always covered by water).
