Assessing Tsunami Readiness--And Finding Issues
When--not if--the Cascadia subduction zone in our region produces an earthquake, it will likely also produce a tsunami.
And a recent report indicates varying degrees of evacuation readiness in coastal communities.
Dr. Nathan Wood at the U.S. Geological Survey is the lead author of the report.
He takes us through the findings, and how they might be used to get coastal residents better prepared for a big wave or series of them.
