Santa Cruz: Boats loose and crashing into one another at harbor


Several boats in Santa Cruz Harbor have gotten loose and are crashing around in the waves during this morning's tsunami warning, the general manager of a nearby restaurant said.

About 10 boats were crashing into one another at about 9:20 a.m. in the harbor near Aldo's Harbor Restaurant, said general manager Alfredo Servin.

The diner is right on the water at 616 Atlantic Ave, and Alfredo said he could see also see a lot of debris.

Harbor officials have advised the public to evacuate the area.

"Do not come to the harbor to secure your vessel," said a warning on the harbor's website. "Harbor crews are working to secure the area."

Alfredo said he could see quite a few people out in the harbor, but it wasn't clear if they were all emergency officials.

He said his restaurant was not open for business.

"We don't want to put people in danger," he said. "We have highway and city police advising us what to do."
