Tens of thousands of people being evacuated this morning on the Oregon coast. This morning the first waves from the huge earthquake in Japan are hitting the coast. We talked with a meteorologist in Portland about the danger these waves present. Johnathan Wolfe says they expect the biggest waves to hit the Oregon coast between 9 and 11 this morning. Some police along the beach are reporting people coming to the beach to watch the waves, and emergency officials repeat that is very dangerous and to stay away from the coast all day.   Wolfe says the 8.9 quake is the fifth largest in recorded history.
