Coffee Break Training: Interactive Tsunami Evacuation Maps Now Available for the Pacific Northwest   [open pdf - 322KB]

"Interactive maps of tsunami evacuation zones in both Oregon and Washington are now available online and as a free smartphone app (TsunamiEvac-NW). The Pacific Northwest Tsunami Evacuation Zones online portal and smartphone app provide an at-a-glance view of tsunami hazard zones along the coasts of Oregon and Washington. This tool was developed by the Northwest Association of Networked Ocean Observing Systems (NANOOS) program. The online portal can be found at http://nvs.nanoos.org/tsunami. The maps have also been integrated into the smartphone app, TsunamiEvac-NW, which allows users to see whether they are in a tsunami evacuation zone and plan their own evacuation routes."
