Tsunami and earthquake experts will share what you need to know about what to do (and what not to do) before and during a tsunami warning. We'll talk about community-wide alerts, the science and dynamics of tsunamis, and how to prepare you and your loved ones to survive a tsunami.

Full Description:
Tsunami and earthquake experts will be on the coast April 10 through April 13 for presentations focused on tsunami hazards, alert messages and getting residents at least two weeks ready.
Officials from the Washington Emergency Management Division will be joined by the Washington Geological Survey, the National Weather Service, the University of Washington and local emergency management officials in the 90-minute presentation, which will include time for questions.
“We’ve done these presentations before, but we’re expecting more interest given the most recent tsunami watch event this past January,” said Keily Yemm, the tsunami program coordinator for the Washington Emergency Management Division. “Given how events unfolded, we think it’s even more imperative to help people understand the advantages of having a NOAA Weather "Alert" Radio, the difference in tsunami alert levels, near source vs distance source tsunamis and when the tsunami sirens will be activated.”
