Along the entire west coast of the United States, this is Tsunami Preparedness Week, a time each year to highlight emergency planning efforts for both the general public, and coastal infrastructure, such as ports and harbors. Today’s Exchange takes a closer look at that process.
The California Office of Emergency Services has prepared interactive maps of the potential tsunami inundation areas for Sonoma, Marin and Napa and all other coastal counties. Residents and visitors in those zones are urged to know where to go to find safe higher ground, if a tsunami alarm should sound. Learn more about these dangerous waves in the video below.
