On March 23, 2021, the California Geological Survey and its partners will release new Tsunami Hazard Area Maps in Monterey County for the public. We encourage you to visit tsunami.ca.gov to see if a tsunami can occur where you live, work, or visit. Once you are on the website, go to the maps page and find your location by typing in your address or use your current location to pinpoint your location on the Tsunami Hazard Area Map.
The updated maps on tsunami.ca.gov are more accurate and easier to access and to understand. This is a great opportunity for the public to check the maps and the California Tsunami Preparedness Guide to see where they live and update their personal and family plans for tsunami evacuation. Go to the map website and type in your address to see if you are in a hazard area or contact your local Office of Emergency Services.
