When it comes to tsunamis, you are at much greater risk on a paddleboard in the ocean than say… sipping cocoa in an Après ski resort. This is just a fact of life. But let’s get into a little more detail.
Residents living around the Ring of Fire along the Pacific Ocean are most at risk for a tsunami, but any coastal region could experience one. And the ocean isn’t the only game in town; any large body of water is capable of producing a tsunami wave.
In the US, Oregon, Washington, California, Hawaii, and Alaska are most at risk, but the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico are also at high risk. Along most of the eastern seaboard, your risk is moderate to high.
Since most of the United States’ population is concentrated on the coasts, and tsunami waves can reach miles inland, you’d be wise to stack some more knowledge!
