* Oregon and Washington tsunami evacuation zone maps developed by the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) and the Washington Department of Natural Resources (WADNR)
*TsunamiEvac-NW app developed by the Northwest Association of Networked Ocean Observing Systems (NANOOS)
TsunamiEvac-NW provides you an at-a-glance view of where the tsunami hazard zones are along the Oregon and Washington coast, and allows you to map whether your home, work, school, etc. is located in a tsunami evacuation zone or not. To help you develop and plan your own evacuation routes, TsunamiEvac-NW enables you to save your current position or points of interest via GPS or address look-up.
As an important tool in preparing for a potentially catastrophic local or distant tsunami event for residents or visitors to the Pacific Northwest coast, TsunamiEvac-NW also displays the locations of places that will be of critical importance prior to, during, and following a tsunami event, including schools, bridges, assembly areas, and various local government buildings.
o Up-to-date tsunami information published by Washington and Oregon state agencies and emergency managers, including evacuation zone maps, location of features of interest, and additional tsunami information for the public
o Access to the most current tsunami warning bulletins from the West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center
o Find a location by either address or GPS
What's New in Version 1.3
Updated Bulletins. Fixed bug that caused bulletins to be missed.
If you go into setting and change the transparency to about 65% you can see all the map detail. I use hybrid to see where the affected businesses, healthcare facilities, schools, etc are. As a preparedness coordinator it allows me to show my colleagues where their sites are in relation to the tsunami zones. Nice tool.
For an app dedicated to public safety, this app is totally useless. Even zoomed way in, the map contains so little detail that it becomes impossible to tell where you are or were to go to be safe.
