Along the South East part of the United States, a few towns are getting serious about tsunami preparedness. Nine towns in all. That isn't many, but
it's a start. Included in these towns is Myrtle Beach, which is a large tourist beach.
That whole area of the country is so flat. For miles and miles inland it is flat. I don't know how they can evacuate mass numbers of people to
higher ground within the short warning time. There really isn't higher ground to be found.
We (outside of philly) aren't in this article, but about 6 months ago we got new giant evacuation route signs put up all around the city. I guess
they must be due to nuclear plants (or terrorism concerns).
Anyways, I thought you all would find this interesting.
