What to Do if a Tsunami Hits LA...
STAY READY! A study says that the California coast, including the Port of Long Beach, could be hit by a tsunami... But just off the coast, scientists say another danger lurks: several major faults capable of producing major earthquakes that could send tsunamis crashing into Los Angeles and San Diego.
With that being said, living in the city of Carson California, the residents are vulnerable and should be prepared! Each family should have a disaster kit set in place for the unexpected.
Have a flashlight for each member of the family and extra batteries. Avoid foods that make you thirsty, have a few cases of water, canned food, dried fruits and protein bars, powdered milk, blankets, can opener, portable radio, and toothbrushes/toothpaste are all things that should be considered in your disaster kit.
Once you have all your family and belongings in place, and set to evacuate the premises. Have a map of your city set in place for different evacuation routes to look over.
Remember... more than likely its going to be chaos and outrageous traffic jams if everyone has the same exit plans. Look over small streets to get inland as quick as possible, head towards higher elevation and most importantly, stay calm!
