Tsunami Fears
Students at the Blossom Gulch Elementary School assemble outside of school during a tsunami drill Thursday, May 31, 2012, in Coos Bay, Ore. During the drill, more than 400 kids there ducked and cover under their desks, as if an earthquake was violently shaking the ground. Then they filed outside and hike a quarter mile up the hill to the high school football field. Each will have a number so they don't get lost. 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.
