Lakeside, Oregon, tsunami evacuation brochure - revised 04/02/20

The Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) has released tsunami evacuation brochures for the communities of Reedsport, Gardiner, and Winchester Bay in coastal Douglas County, and Lakeside and Tenmile Creek in northern coastal Coos County.

The maps show modeled tsunami evacuation zones for both local-source (Cascadia Subduction Zone) and distant-source (such as from Alaska) tsunami scenarios. The maps also show evacuation routes and assembly areas.

The evacuation brochures are available free for download from the http://www.OregonGeology.org and http://www.OregonTsunami.org websites.
