Are You Prepared???

Published by at 5:14 pm under Liveaboard Topics

Last weekend’s volcano explosion in Tonga 5700 miles away and our subsequent tsunami alert here is a reminder to us boaters of our exposure to a potential tsunami event in Puget Sound.  The Tonga tsunami affected Santa Cruz harbor and forced the evacuation of 115 liveaboards at the Berkely Marina.  This was a 6–8-hour window to evacuate.  What if it was closer?  See the WA State DNR simulation

Do you have a plan in place?  If you have time, deep water is your best bet Otherwise evacuate to higher ground and take what you can-the marina and/or your boat could be heavily damaged.
