Tsunami researchers and experts will provide an overview of how a tsunami forms in the North Atlantic Basin and how this threatens the east coast. The speakers will describe the mapping tools they developed that will help you plan and prepare for this hazard. Additionally the results of these mapping tools will be discussed that have been input into Hazus to help estimate the impact of their hazard products on east coast communities.
