Follow-Up On Disaster Report

BY JOAN REUTINGER

We had a nice phone call from the Grand Jury about the disaster article last month. The caller mentioned something that we had never thought of before. There is no tidal wave-or tsunami-warning on the coast.

Tidal waves are a possibility on the coast, and we need a tsunami warning system. There is a strong possibility that tidal waves will hit the coast in West Marin, and what will we do without a warning? Add that to fire, earthquake and flooding as a possibility on the West Marin coast.
