CRESCENT CITY, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW
Crescent City, located 20 miles south of the Oregon border, is the only incorporated city in Del Norte County. Crescent City is also the largest city and the county seat of Del Norte County, with a population of 7,643. The population includes inmates at the notorious Pelican Bay State Prison, a 275 acre super-max facility housing violent offenders. Over 40 % of Pelican State’s inmates are serving life sentences.
The indigenous Tolowa and Yurok Indians originally made their home in Del Norte County and the historical society in Crescent City contains a collection of their beautiful basketry and other artifacts. The museum also contains photographs of early pioneer settlements, forestry and mining operations, with thousands more archived in the research room.
The enduring man-made symbols of Del Norte County are the Battery Point Lighthouse and the St. George Reef Lighthouse. Battery Point (also known as the Crescent City Light Station) has been an active lighthouse for over 160 years.
St. George Reef Lighthouse was completed in 1890 to guide mariners around the treacherous “Dragon rocks”, following the tragic wreck of the Brother Jonathan steamer. Over 200 lives were lost in what is still considered one of the worse maritime disasters on the Pacific Coast.
The offshore topography of Crescent City makes it particularly susceptible to tsunami waves. Crescent City has experienced 34 tsunamis, more than any other community on the Pacific Coast. On March 1, 1964 much of the city was destroyed by a series of tsunami waves generated by a 9.2-magnitude earthquake near Anchorage, Alaska. The 21 foot wall of water killed 12 people and caused an estimated $15 million in damage to Crescent City. In the years since the disaster, Crescent City has become the only city in California currently designated “Tsunami Ready” by the National Weather Service. There is a siren-based tsunami warning that is regularly tested. There are tsunami evacuation routes and maps throughout the city.
The Inner Boat Basin at the Crescent City Harbor District suffered $10 million in damage in a 2006 tsunami. It was destroyed by the 2011 tsunami, triggered by an 8.9 earthquake in Japan, thousands of miles away. A wave measuring over 8 feet, took out 35 boats, piers, and docks. The harbor was considered a total loss.
The harbor was completely rebuilt by 2014, as the first tsunami-resistant marina on the West Coast. The new pilings are driven up to 37 feet into bedrock under the harbor. There is also a state of the art 400-foot tsunami attenuator dock, designed to withstand a 12 to 15-foot wave, with closely spaced piles meant to disrupt tsunami flow patterns within the harbor.
