Tue 8 AM | New App Shows Humboldt Tsunami Zones

22 hours ago

Our part of the world is prone to earthquakes and resulting tsunamis. 

In coastal communities, it's easy to know where to go TO, should a tsunami warning sound.  But that doesn't cover where you should run FROM. 

A new smartphone app developed by Todd Becker, an environmental analyst for Humboldt County, shows the tsunami evacuation zones in the county. 

So you can check on a phone which areas should be left behind once the ground shakes. 

Todd Becker visits with details of the app and its development.
