TSUNAMI

Tsunami

A local earthquake may generate tsunami waves that can reach shore in minutes. If you are on the beach or other low-lying area close to the ocean or bay, immediately evacuate by walking to higher ground if:

  • Officials issue a tsunami warning and order evacuations; 

  • The earth shakes so much that you can't stand;

  • Shaking lasts longer than 20 seconds; and/or

  • You notice water receding from the shoreline.
