Tsunami Preparedness
No guide to earthquake preparedness would be complete without
a warning about Tsunamis and a few key points to prepare.
Obviously, the most important thing to know about a tsunami is
to get to higher ground. A car could be the fastest way to get to
higher ground, but a traffic jam of others with the same idea
could be your biggest concern. In short, know when to bail out of
the car and take the walking route.

#1: Always know the Tsunami escape route.
Heading to higher ground quickly is imperative. The most
important thing to know about surviving a Tsunami is to know
that the walking escape route could be markedly different from
the driving escape route!

You may find blue "Tsunami danger" hazard signs alerting you to
key areas in the community, which are particularly dangerous.
Some communities have signs directing to safety and gathering
areas, which are yellow stickers with black arrows.

#2: Be alert to the risk factor for Tsunami.
Knowing the risk factor for a tsunami is important, and here are
the signs:

  • Extremely strong coastal earthquake lasting 20 seconds
    or more. Nature is powerful and an earthquake on the ocean
    floor will displace large amounts of water to the coastal
    cities and towns. An earthquake with a magnitude greater
    than 6.5 should be your personal alert. Many people after
    the shock of the earthquake wave will be unaware of
    tsunamis and the need to get to higher ground.

  • Rapid rise or fall in coastal waters. Rising waters is an
    obvious sign, but the fall in coastal waters is something to
    pay close attention. This is key, because victims are often
    mesmerized by the fall in coastal waters and are lured to the
    unusual opportunity to walk to a boat that was previously
    docked at the end of pier. These victims are usually swept to
    their death in the surge of water.

Here is a shocking look at the devastation a tsunami causes:

After an earthquake, prepare for a Tsunami!

In case of Earthquake, head to high ground.
Is anyone ever really prepared for a tsunami? A rare but real
threat to coastlines, Tsunamis don't just happen in Japan. They
happen in the United States. Caused by a series of waves or
surges mostly caused by an earthquake beneath the sea floor. An
earthquake 6.5 or above could trigger a tsunami.

Too often, Americans don't think they are susceptible to a
tsunami, but the warning signs are there. When you are aware,
you'll notice the familiar blue signs posted along the shore,
especially along the
Cascadia subduction zone. CNN refers to the
this as the quake-maker you've never heard about. The Cascadia
subduction zone runs from Cape Mendocino to Vancouver Island
