Tsunami Evacuation Walk Time Maps Published

The Washington Geological Survey (WGS) has published tsunami evacuation walk time maps for the City of  Anacortes and the Samish/Bow/Edison areas of unincorporated Skagit County. The maps show the amount of time it would take to evacuate from within the modeled inundation zone of a Cascadia-sourced subduction zone earthquake. The maps show the extent of the tsunami inundation zone and the paths of tsunami evacuation routes. Colors indicate how many minutes it would take to get to safety from any given location within the inundation zone.

Maps are also available through an interactive map on the WGS website:

The interactive map also provides access to tsunami evacuation brochures for areas that do not have walk time maps yet
