The magnitude-5.3 earthquake that rattled Southern California was the strongest in the region in several years, but it did not produce any tsunami warnings.

The quake was far too weak to generate a tsunami, said Chris Popham, lead oceanographer for the National Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer, Alaska. Generally, earthquakes of a magnitude 7 or above are those that cause concern, he said.

Additionally, the earthquake occurred on a strike-slip fault, in which the faults are generally moving in a horizontal direction.

The worst tsunamis tend to occur on a different type of system, known as a subduction zone earthquake, in which faults produce a great deal of vertical motion. Subduction zone earthquakes are the kind that produced massive, deadly flooding in Japan in 2011 and happened off the coast of Oregon and Washington states in 1700.

There are, however, scenarios in which earthquakes in Southern California do cause significant tsunamis.

A study published in 2015 by U.S. Geological Survey and UC Riverside scientists found that tsunami wave heights could approach as high as 20 feet in the Ventura Harbor and Channel Islands Beach area near Oxnard. That study focused on on a hypothetical scenario in which a magnitude-7.7 earthquake begins nine miles under the Earth's surface, under the mountains northeast of Santa Barbara.

Caltech seismologist Egill Hauksson said an offshore earthquake in 1812 caused a tsunami of perhaps 3 feet tall in the Ventura area. But because recorded history in California is so short, scientists don't have too much documented information of how big tsunamis have been.

Surfrider's blue water task force strongly advises avoiding water contact for the next 48-72 hours to avoid getting sick from these high levels of bacteria.

Following heavy rainfall this week, there were significantly elevated levels of bacteria identified at Santa Monica Beach on testing done Wednesday, March 14.

All of the 3 sites where Surfrider Foundation Los Angeles Blue Water Task Force conducts testing, showed elevated levels of Enterococcus bacteria. The EPA-recommended threshold for safe levels is less than 104 CFU (most probable number of colony forming units). .

The peak levels in front of Station 26, Shutters/Pico-Kenter stormdrain, and the Pier were 504, 1396, and 364 CFU, respectively. Note in particular the very high level of bacteria in front of the storm drain by Shutters.

As a legendary rock band from Hawthorne, the Beach Boys likely picked up some good vibrations when District 66 Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi introduced a bill in January that would make surfing the official sport of California. Surfing is inexorably linked with the state’s DNA through artists like the Beach Boys, movies like the 1991 Kathryn Bigelow classic “Point Break” and tourism ads suggesting people live out the California dream in places like Malibu Beach.

As a legendary rock band from Hawthorne, the Beach Boys likely picked up some good vibrations when District 66 Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi introduced a bill in January that would make surfing the official sport of California.

Surfing is inexorably linked with the state’s DNA through artists like the Beach Boys , movies like the 1991 Kathryn Bigelow classic “Point Break”and tourism ads suggesting people live out the California dream in places like Malibu Beach.

However, the idea of making surfing the one and only representative activity of the Golden State at a constitutional level discounts the richly diverse tapestry of Californians and the sports they enjoy.

Certain aspects of surfing’s prevalence in popular culture can be considered problematic, said adjunct American studies professor and Studio for Southern California History director Sharon Sekhon.

Tourism focuses primarily on the narrative of the “great white man,” Sekhon said, which leaves out the stories of women and Asian surfers especially. It is also an expensive hobby for people who don’t live next to the beach or own a surfboard.

“Surfing does seem to be the (sport) you would immediately go to when you think of California,” Sekhon said. “But I grew up in Orange County and Fullerton, and getting access to the beach was very difficult.”

It also isn’t the only sport that can be regarded as something intrinsically connected to the beaches of California.

Olympians Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor, who both come from California, have been designated the “greatest beach volleyball team of all time” by the United States Olympic Committee after they won three consecutive gold medals in 2004, 2008 and 2012.

However, the beach is only one facet of California’s landscape and identity.

California is the only state where people can snowboard at Big Bear in the morning and surf in Hermosa that same afternoon. It only takes about three or four hours to go between the mountain resort community and the beachside city.

Those who decide to brave the shifting snowpack over the shifting sand dunes have brought California into the limelight as well. Look no further than Chloe Kim, the 17-year-old Torrance resident who won a gold medal in the Ladies’ Halfpipe at this year’s Winter Olympics in PyeongChang.

The acclaim brought back to California by snowboarders is just one example of how the sport deeply pervades the culture of one sect of the state just as much as surfing defines another.

But there is something missing from solo sports like surfing and snowboarding that also characterizes the ideologies of the Golden State: a push for collectivist diversity. For Sekhon, that hitch makes the answer to what would be an ideal California state sport simple.

“It would have to be something that was a team sport,” Sekhon said. “I think about who has access to it and who do we see representation from every sphere of our population: basketball.”

Basketball, while in part promoting the power of teamwork, is another sport that represents California’s consciousness. For many, the Los Angeles Lakers are a household name thanks to the players they made famous: Shaquille O’Neal, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant and so on.

Team sports like basketball might be more apt choices for a state sport in terms of representing the state’s diversity, but they doesn’t quite scream “California” as much as surfing. Plus, the same problem of only showcasing one facet of the myriad of interests across the state remains.

Perhaps it would be best to borrow from Occam’s razor: The simplest solution is often the preferred one. If no sport represents the entire diverse tapestry of California culture, maybe no single sport should be chosen through legislation.

Besides, Hawaii has already claimed surfing to be its official individual sport.
