Update: Fox News - "Coast Guard searching for man swept out to sea." KDRV-TV "Three Swept out to Sea - One Confirmed Dead"

According to Fox News, up to four people have been swept to sea from Crescent City, US. This is the first alert to possible human injury and death in North America due to the Japanese tsunami and earthquake. Waiting for independent verification, it is alleged that one of the four is dead. This news is the latest in the now “global tragedy” that began with Japan’s massive earthquake.

Crescent City had waves of up to eight feet. The city caps the shore, thus the name. In 1964, eleven people died in a massive Tsunami. The city was ordered evacuated earlier this morning as a wall of water was expected to hit the northern-California city, northern-California and Oregon.

The tsunami from Japan’s earthquake hit the coast of California on Friday morning. Along with Crescent City, Santa Cruz and other parts of Northern California were hit. Two hours ago, there was no report of major damage or flooding in Southern California.

Up to 35 boats have been damaged in harbor of Crescent City. Police officers went door to door to evacuate the sea shore town. The identities of the four people swept into the sea have not been released.

Update: A new report states that one of the bodies is “confirmed dead;” per Fox News.
