On March 23, 2021, the California Geological Survey and its partners will release new Tsunami Hazard Area Maps in Alameda County for the public. We encourage you to visit www.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.
For the City of Emeryville, CGS’ new analysis indicates the Tsunami Hazard Area has now been extended beyond the railroad to east of the railroad, along Horton Street. Even a relatively minor tsunami (less than 3-foot high) could be dangerous and damaging to areas along the waterfront.
The updated maps on www.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.
