Tsunami hazard warning signs are now posted in several San Diego coastal neighborhoods. The signs are part of a county and city effort to prepare for the seismically-generated waves.
The city of San Diego plans to spend as much as $150,000 in grant money from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to prepare coastal areas for tsunamis.
The City of San Diego has 26 miles of oceanfront and 27 miles of shoreline along Mission Bay.
The money will pay for the posting and maintenance of tsunami warning signs, public education to increase tsunami readiness, and training and exercises for emergency first responders.
Tsunami hazard signs are already posted in coastal areas of the city including Mission Beach. The signs direct people to follow evacuation routes to higher ground in case of a tsunami.
