Swarm of waves marching into the Siuslaw River

Possible Aftershock Waves

These were taken between 1 and 2 pm on 3/11/2011. That's about 6 hours after the initial tsunami hit our coastline. These might be part of that or might be from one of several large aftershocks that continue to strike the coastline of Japan. They started out between 3-4 feet, grew to 5-7 feet, then dropped dramatically to just minor swells. It was low tide - at least I THINK it was low tide; that might have been the lower water level due to the tsunami as well.
