Some of the tsunami damage in Chip's state

This is obviously nothing on the level of what happened in Japan as far as damage, but illustrates the power of this disaster regardless.  The town of Brookings is a place I used to visit often.  The last time I was there, my wife and I were walking on the beach and discussed "Hey, what would it be like if there was a tsunami here?"  Four hours after we left, there was an earthquake out to sea and a tsunami warning.  It really made us think, and now here is visceral evidence of the power of nature and why people prepare.
