The Great Tsunami Waves Produces Powerful And Unpredictable Surges On The Osa Peninsula.
The lagoon of the Agujitas River on the west side of Bahia Drake on Costa Rica's Pacific coast received various strong surges starting around 5pm on the 11th March. Arriving at intervals of of around every 45 min the surge was only noticeable in the tidal bore area of the Agujas River. Later in the night around 11PM , Bradd Johnson of Aguila de Osa Lodge saw a much larger surge wave enter the river mouth very quickly. Within seconds two boats belonging to Marleny Jimenez's Drake Bay Resort upended and filled with water. Boats belonging to La Paloma Lodge broke free of their lines, probably why they did not sink, and banged against the rocks of the lagoon bank.
Broken motors and boats is getting off very lucky compared to the poor, poor people of Japan, but it shows the great reach of the massive tsunami of the Japan quake.
Seems that enclosed harbor like areas like Crescent City and Santa Cruz marina California, and the Rio Agujas of Drake Bay Costa Rica focused the massive surges from the tsunami, whereas in many places along the Americas coast it seems to have gone unnoticed.
Even today, erratic and strangely timed, small but unusually powerful surges are arriving into the Rio Agujas tidal bore, apparently as the Japan quake tsunami continues to reverberate and bounce around the world.
