    Government forecasters confirm a rare East Coast tsunami.

    FOX News Radio’s Lisa Brady reports on when it happened:

    Audio clip:

    The evidence recorded at more than 30 tide gauges along the East Coast, Bermuda and Puerto Rico on June 13th. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also has witness accounts of the tsunami. One man spearfishing in New Jersey first saw the tide rush out, exposing breakwater rocks usually three to four feet deep. Then, a six-foot wave rushed in, sweeping people off ¬†rocks usually five to six feet above sea level. Two people needed medical attention. ¬†And at a Rhode Island yacht club, a strong enough current through a channel to rip one large boat’s cleat right out of a dock.
