A magnitude 8.9 earthquake in Japan triggered 20-foot high tsunami waves that killed hundreds of people there. The tsunami wave headed for the West Coast. How is this event affecting you, your family, your business and others you know in Japan and on the West Coast?

Do you take tsunami warnings seriously on the West Coast? Have you evacuated from a coastal zone?

Does this disaster cause you to re-think your own emergency preparations, including how you might reach your family if there were a large earthquake or other disaster in California?
