“The Pacific Coast, Strait of Juan de Fuca, Puget Sound, and large lakes are at risk from tsunamis, trains of waves that threaten people and property along shorelines. Sudden raising or lowering of the earth’s crust during earthquakes generally causes a tsunami, although landslides and underwater volcanic eruptions also can generate them. Movements of the sea floor or lake bed, or rock fall into an enclosed body of water, displace the water column, setting off a series of waves that radiate outward like pond ripples.” – Read more at Emergency Management Division
We camped one night at Pacific Beach State Park, near Aberdeen on the Washington State west coast. We had electricity, sani-dump, no fire pit, hot showers, helpful staff; the campground is walking distance from a beautiful sandy beach and lagoon. It was much cooler, even though there was no shade. This campsite is very popular, I suggest that you reserve, even during the week. We paid $35 per day. Shower tokens can be bought at the office where you register. There are beautiful beaches with access close by. There are small shops in Pacific Beach.
