Tsunami Evacuation Zones on Google Maps

Oregon Tsunami Evacuation Map

This Google Map from the the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries shows tsunami evacuation zones for the Oregon coast. The map allows those who live or work in Oregon to search the map to see if they are in an area where special actions should be taken in the event of a strong earthquake.

The map overlays custom map tiles on Google Maps to show tsunami evacuation zones in Oregon. It is possible to search the map by address, zip code or coastal area. The site also gives tsunami safety advice explaining what you should do if a strong earthquake occurs.
