Tsunami warnings on US west coast has Oregon residents moving inland

Residents living near beaches along the Oregon coast evacuated their homes Friday morning, and gift shops and other businesses stayed shuttered as a tsunami surged across the Pacific following a massive earthquake in Japan.

Coastal communities were bracing for waves of up to 6 feet that could cause damage.

Gov. John Kitzhaber issued a statement urging “all Oregonians along the coast to heed tsunami alarms and follow instructions from public safety officials about heading to higher ground.”

Evacuations were reported in parts of several coastal communities.
