Tsunami Alert for Venice

A giant earthquake, measuring 8.0 and four Tsunamis rumbled through Samoa, Sept. 29, killing at least 200 people.

Venice, and the rest of the California coast was put on alert after the quake. In Samoa, the Tsunami generated 20 foot waves but in Venice, it was reduced to crashing surf.

The Beachhead had been instrumental in pushing the city to put up Tsunami warning signs. But as usual they screwed it up by not posting any signs on Ocean Front Walk where most of our clueless tourists hang out. Even though they take up most of our parking places, beach visitors deserve to survive a Tsunami. As it stands, they don’t know which way to run.
