Santa Clara (isn't) Santa Cruz

My daughter Maya (in Putney VT bordering NH), left me
a panicky message thinking I’m on the tsunami-battered
CA Pacific coast; but I’m 20 mi. inland, tsunami-safe
on the other side of the Santa Cruz mtns; 50 mi. S,
in Santa Cruz harbor, 18 boats were bashed & sunk,
but up in Santa Clara, I'm just 6 mi.inland from the S tip
of S.F. Bay @ Alviso where a new cement small-boat
& kayak launching dock, & newly cleared marsh-channel
access S. S.F. Bay. (Most small boats here are stored on
boat-trailers in driveways; there's no harbor tsunami surge,
just gradually intermittent rain.
