We live in an Earthquake Zone

We could get a tsunami following an earthquake. If the ground shakes so hard that you can’t stand, a tsunami tidal wave is likely. When the ground stops shaking, move inland and up. You want to get at least 50 feet above sea level to survive the tidal wave. Look around you right now and ask, Am I in the Tsunami zone – Would a 30 foot wave reach me. If so, plan where you will go following an earthquake to survive the tsunami. I’ll have earthquake tips all week.
