Bernard, E.N.

In Proceedings of the International Tsunami Symposium 2001 (ITS 2001), NTHMP Review Session, R-1, Seattle, WA, 7–10 August 2001, 21–27, (on CD-ROM) (2001)

This summary provides an executive summary of the individual reports for the five recommendations described in the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Implementation Plan. Each individual report describes the recommendation, what has been accomplished, and the impact of these accomplishments toward reducing the impact of tsunamis to U.S. coastal communities. The individual reports also describe recommended activities for the next 5 years. In addition, a case study of Gray's Harbor County, Washington, illustrates the steps taken over the past 5 years to certify a community as TsunamiReady. The summary report is organized to provide background; budgets, accomplishments, and impact for each recommendation; a summary of future recommendations; identification of gaps in the present plan; and options for the future.
