The NOAA Center for Tsunami Research modeled tsunami inundation from a great Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake for the coastal communities of Long Beach and Ocean Shores, Washington. A high-resolution numerical model was used to estimate tsunami propagation and inundation along the outer coast of southwest Washington. This effort was funded by the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program via a grant from the Emergency Management Division of the Washington State Military Department.
