Tsunami Fears
A Tsunami evacuation route sign is shown Thursday, May 31, 2012, Charleston, Ore. Thousands of people in three Oregon coastal communities are holding their first tsunami evacuation drill, stirred to action by the 2011 tsunami that devastated coastal towns in Japan. When the tsunami from Japan hit last year, residents had hours to get ready, and severe damage was limited to harbors such as Crescent City, Calif. One person was swept away and died.
