Tsunami Advisory Issued

You probably just received an alert via your cell phone for a Tsunami Advisory for coastline in King County. The tsunami was caused by an underwater volcano erupting near the Tonga Islands.

I just checked out the map on Tsunami.gov and it “appears” that we should be safe if the map is accurate.

High tide was 11.69 ft at 5:06 am. As I write this post (10:15 am), the current tide is approx. 8.33 feet and will be heading back up to 10.23 feet around 2:15 this afternoon.

At the very least, for our area, this could be an opportunity to practice for a tsunami. We hope everyone along the west coast, San Juan Islands and around the world are safe!
