Tsunami in San Diego?
Tsunami’s Happen in San Diego
In February a powerful 8.8 magnitude earthquake that occurred in Chile caused Tsunami warnings to be in effect for the western coast of the Pacific Ocean all the way up to San Diego and north to Santa Monica. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, (NOAA), a tsunami is a series of waves caused by earthquakes or undersea volcanic eruptions. As the waves travel inland, the waves build and become larger the closer they get to the shore. Fortunately for San Diego residents, SERVPRO® of San Diego City SW has years of experience dealing with all kinds of storm damage and no job is too big.
