The Washington State Department of Natural Resources released an updated tsunami simulation model on Tuesday, August 27. The model shows the potential scenario if a Cascadia Subduction Zone quake were to erupt. The updated information has provided both state and local agencies along with residents on the coastline a glimpse of what to expect.
Minutes expected to matter
The new model shows that should a CSZ quake strike off the coastline the Long Beach Peninsula would have a 15-20 minute window before a large caliber tsunami would strike the area. Areas such as Tokeland would be in the same window of time but further into the valley, those near Bay Center may have up to 45 minutes. Raymond and South Bend both are anticipated to have approximately 60-90 minutes before being impacted.
