In 2016, the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program (NTHMP) will recognize Tsunami Preparedness Week the last week in March to coincide with the date of the 1964 Great Alaska Earthquake and Tsunamis (March 27). For more information about tsunami preparedness and what may be happening in your state or territory, visit the TsunamiZone, see the links below, and follow NTHMP partners on social media. The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors has proclaimed March 22-28 Tsunami Preparedness Week in the County of Humboldt.
While some states and territories also plan to promote tsunami preparedness this week, others do so at different times.

County departments, schools, businesses, and residents are encouraged to schedule an activity that week to increase preparedness for and awareness of the tsunami hazard to the California coast. Tsunami warning systems most effectively notify the public of distant source tsunamis caused by earthquakes not felt in Humboldt County. Participation may include evacuation drills, tsunami awareness activities, or household and workplace preparedness such as stocking or rotating emergency water and food, or preparing an evacuation bag.
In the event of a local source tsunami, ground shaking lasting 20 seconds or longer is the warning to evacuate a tsunami zone and get to higher ground or inland.
