Tsunami Fears
Blossom Gulch Elementary School kindergarten teacher Carli Ainsworth leads her class to higher ground on Thursday, May 31, 2012, in Coos Bay, Ore. Mindful of the dangers of a locally generated tsunami since last year's disaster in Japan, several thousand people in Coos Bay and nearby coastal communities took part in an evacuation drill, testing their ability to walk to safety within the 20 minutes it is estimated for a massive surge of water to arrive after a huge offshore earthquake.
