California's damage estimate from last month's tsunami has reportedly increased.

The damage estimate is now $48 million, about $4 million more than a previous estimate.

Harbors in Santa Cruz and Crescent City were among the hardest hit by the surge of water triggered by Japan's 9.0-magnitude earthquake.

The California Emergency Management Agency is also reportedly planning to seek federal aid to help pay for repairs.
