Here’s a great video from NOAA reminding people what to do during a tsunami and how to detect one.
A great takeaway from the video discusses how high you should travel to escape the inundation zone…
When escaping a tsunami, the rule of thumb per the NOAA, is 100 feet uphill or 1 mile inland.

Just wondering when you will add more articles? I am interested in your blog and read it as a vacationer who stays in Neskowin but lives in Eastern WA.
My family was there many years ago during an evening drill. We have a son with autism and he was terrified with the sirens and chaos. I am always trying to figure out how best to plan an escape and be able to reassure him. We also had a disabled family member and I never see any info on how to help them.
Thanks for working hard to share this info with us.
Thank you for the comment. I am hoping to start up again. Best wishes to your family!
