Seen in Sandspit, Haida Gwaii (map link).

I expect all the residents know where to go in the event of a tsunami, and really the sign is superfluous.



I am off to the field for a few weeks. I will have intermittent internet and will try to respond to comments when I can.

    • I don’t really need the reminder – my house is only a few meters above sea level, though the tsunami modelling suggests I should be safe in the event of a wave. However, that modelling is only for an earthquake moving the crust, not for, for instant, a major land slide on the Olympic Peninsula across from where I live – such as a significant underwater slump of the spit at Port Angeles. It would be interesting to see a model for such an event.
