The all-clear was posted on the National Weather Service's Twitter page about 3 a.m. Pacific Time with a caveat: "No tsunami threat for So Cal. Stronger than normal currents are possible in the harbors and bays later this morning."
Remember, even though there is no threat of a tsunami affecting California, there will be strong and unusual currents today, especially in local harbors. Good idea not to go swimming in harbors today. #cawx #SoCal #LAweather https://t.co/L2Y5iVWPXr— NWS Los Angeles (@NWSLosAngeles) July 29, 2021
