Being prepared will be the key to survival. The tectonic plates off the west coast are squeezing each other with tremendous force. When they break - which is a certainty - they will release a tremendous amount of force resulting in a massive earthquake and inevitable tsunami. People being prepared on the outer coast who may have 20 minutes before the tsunami hits, will be essential to survival.
