Crescent City to receive $6M for harbor rebuilding
CRESCENT CITY, Calif. (KGO) -- The Northern California harbor that was heavily damaged by tsunami waves in March is getting $6 million in federal funding to rebuild.
The Crescent City Harbor was damaged by the tsunami, which came from the 9.1 magnitude earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan. One man was killed while watching the nearly 8-foot waves.
The federal money will help repair the embankment that shelters the harbor, in time for the fall crab season.
The announcement came from senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer, and Representative Mike Thompson.
