Large tsunamis have inundated the Washington coast in the past, and they will do so again in the future. Conveying accurate information about this natural hazard to the public is challenging. The Washington Geological Survey produces tsunami inundation and current speed maps, as well as maps of pedestrian evacuation times and routes. These maps help emergency managers and public officials communicate what we know about tsunamis to the public, increasing community resilience and preparedness.
