So what does this look like from the Vista Point? It’s like watching a tide cycle, but the cycle is every 10 to 15 minutes. It’s high tide. Then it’s low tide. Meanwhile, the normal tide is rising.

      I don’t know. I was told that a high tides makes the situation worse. However, it appears that this thing is winding down. It’s not over, but…

        Thank You Jack, Let’s just hope for the best.
        I have another question to ask concerning our being notified by the proper officials etc. My brother lives over in Henderson Center, Eureka & he was called on the phone at his house & advised to evacuate & he also heard a siren go off. I was up & about early this morning here in McKinleyville but no one called me & I didn’t hear any siren etc., My backyard is less than a mile from the water’s edge & yet I received NO NOTICE whatsoever. Do you know why there was no notice by any chance ? Also I have no idea where the nearest ” Emergency Shelter ” is or WHERE exactly we are suppose to go in the event of another tsunami ? When I tried to get this info from the Sheriff’s office & the Dept. of Emergency Services in Eureka this morning … all that they would say to me was that they hadn’t issued any mandatory evacuation orders yet & not to worry that I would probably be just fine … What ??? What kind of public safety information is that ? So I am just suppose to risk ” MY Life ” based on their own personal opinion ? Everybody who lives in McKinleyville should know the exact location of where we are to go in the case of a tsunami or any type of emergency for that matter. Thank You for any information you or anyone else might have ~ Seasyl

    I’ll take some personal blame because it’s my job to keep folks informed, at least with regards to where the shelters are, etc.

    The McKinleyville Activity Center at Pierson Park is our designated shelter. You’ll be happy to know that there’s a storage facility located on the backside of the nearby bathrooms stocked with cots, blankets and supplies.

    As for notification, when I came home I discovered that we were called twice by some sort of automated system. The Press will do a little research to find out who gets called and who doesn’t.

    I’ll try to find out more info.

    Thank You Jack .
    I went to Denny’s for a late breakfast today & it was packed with people. Many of them were discussing this situation & saying that they had not been notified and did not know where to go etc., Posting this information will surely help to reduce the anxiety that was pretty evident around town today. Again thank you for all of your help 🙂
