    When it comes to tsunami research you should view the Japan and India tsunami's from the past few years. India is like an inlet of sorts. land on three sides. Water is pushed to the middle. CA is wide open sea pretty much so the waves are more spread out so MY thoughts would be it wouldn't go inland as far. Do you understand my "mental illustrations" lol I'm not explaining very well. CA has the mountain range so it would stop there and thats quite a few miles inland. I've already told my BFF her route to evacuate the LA area, but I need to make her a package with detailed maps and stuff. Back roads that normal people wouldn't know about and such.

    I just have to say you guys really warm my heart. I feel like you guys really understand ME! I get on this thread and there are demonstrations and REAL chat! I'm so glad I found this site!!

      CrazeeMomma,

      I believe I understand what your saying and thinking but tsunamis don't exactly work that way. As it comes on shore (continental shelf) it will gain speed, height and intensity. All river valleys will be inundated as the surge moves up all available avenues, which increases the speed and height of the tsunami. A 100 foot tsunami may exceed 200 to 300 feet in elevation as the water trys to lose its available energy. They also come in "sets" of waves and I know that increases the damage and reach, but I'm not sure how. Here is a map of tsunami danger that had been referenced to me for a major event.

      Hope I made a little sense. I understand the basics but it was explained to me by folks that really knew there business.

      FYI - July 9, 1958: Regarded as the largest recorded in modern times, the tsunami in Lituya Bay, Alaska was caused by a landslide triggered by an 8.3 magnitude earthquake. Waves reached a height of 1,720 feet (576 meters) in the bay, but because the area is relatively isolated and in a unique geologic setting the tsunami did not cause much damage elsewhere. It sank a single boat, killing two fishermen.
