Tsunami in San Diego?

8/3/2020 (Permalink)

A large Tsunami wave is shown ready to crash onto the shoreline. Storm damage can take many forms in the Gas Lamp Quarter.

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. Here are some safety measures you can take if you are under a Tsunami warning in the Gas Lamp Quarter:

  • First, protect yourself from an Earthquake. Drop, Cover, then Hold On.
  • Get to high ground as far inland as possible
  • Be alert to signs of a tsunami, such as a sudden rise or draining of ocean waters
  • Listen to emergency information and alert
  • Evacuate: DO NOT wait!
  • Leave as soon as you see any natural signs of a tsunami or receive an official tsunami warning
  • If you are in a boat, go out to sea
