    Tsunamis have ravaged the whole Pacific Northwest area. Granted, many years ago. I often vacation near Moclips and that area was totally destroyed in (going to totally blow the date but...) the 1920's? It was a huge resort/boating destination and the local museum has photographic evidence.
    Once while visiting there my husband, 2 daughters, husbands friend and his 2 daughters were almost lost while playing in the surf. What happened? well the night before there was an earthquake in Japan and the rouge wave traveled and pulled everyone under water. Whithout the quick thinking of my husband and his friend we seriously almost lost everyone.
    The surf they were playing in was at the mouth of a river there.
    Everyone was fine and wet but this is a serious issue for the whole Pacific Northwest.
    My daughters still talk about the 'big wave' and are getting over their fears of water.
    Our last govenor did some amazing work on our emergency systems, but we still have far to go and as always it seems to me the Native Americans will be shafted as usual.
    It is a beautiful place to live. And I would not be happy any other place.
    Oh and Mt. Rainier could blow at any time, but it is still a favorite place to visit.
    Thank you for this wonderful diary!
