What parts of Ocean Beach area are in tsunami zone?
The White House has proposed cuts to the program that detects tsunamis at sea, tsunamis that potentially could flood parts of the neighborhoods near Ocean Beach.
Federal officials say there wouldn’t be any impact on public safety, but some tsunami scientists aren’t so sure.
Check the state map of the Ocean Beach tsunami inundation zone below, and tell us in a comment what you think. Are the proposed federal cuts misguided? Are you worried about tsunamis hitting the Ocean Beach area? What’s your plan in case a tsunami hits?
More about tsunamis, including the U.S. warning system and information on how to prepare for one, is available at the NOAA tsunami website.
