This issue of TsuInfo includes articles on:
- New Without Warning! Tsunami comic released
A new comic book, Without Warning! Tsunami, is the latest collaboration by TsuInfo partners to bring preparedness messaging to youth. In 2013, Oregon Office of Emergency Management’s Geologic Hazards Program Coordinator Althea Rizzo approached Dark Horse Comics with a proposal. An avid comic book fan herself, Rizzo knew that it was a good way to reach a new target audience. In August 2014, Without Warning was released, telling a story of an Oregon teen who reunites with her family after a major Cascadia earthquake.
- First-ever world Tsunami Awareness Day set to debut in November. Stay tuned!
Also featured are tsunami project updates, news, newly published research, and upcoming events
