Not even 5,300-plus miles and a 16-hour time separation could eliminate the effect of last Friday's tsunami that resulted from the earthquake in Japan.

Small but powerful tsunami waves were acutely felt in the harbor in Santa Cruz, Calif., where boats large and small were knocked around and overturned in a domino-like effect. Damage in the harbor is expected to exceed $25 million.

The two videos that follow show the perspective of two onlookers as the wave enters the harbor.
