Ready for a wave

Find out what to do if there's a tsunami

Tsunamis are a hazard that we don’t talk about often, but the Japanese earthquake in 2011 changed all that. Do you know how you will likely be affected if there is a tsunami warning for the Oak Bay coastline? Do you know what to do?

Find out at a special meeting June 18, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Windsor Park Pavilion, 2451 Windsor Rd.

See the new tsunami inundation (flood area) map for Oak Bay, walk through the research used to build the map and hear about how it affects you and what you can do to be safe.

Tsunamis in Oak Bay is a free presentation. Please pre-register at 250-592-9121 or email egrant@oakbay.ca to guarantee your seat.
