Weekly Photography Challenge: The Sign Says

Tsunami sign, Aberdeen

This sign stands across the road from the Olympic Inn Motel in Aberdeen, Washington – they are all around the coast, as we later discovered (the evacuation route signs, not the motel). It did make me feel slightly nervous, since ‘high ground’ was blocks away…Still, the nice lady at the Tourist Info place reassured us that there had not been any tsunami during her 30 years of residence. I didn’t have the heart to tell her that ‘none in the last 30 years’ doesn’t preclude one tomorrow or next week! Or, hopefully, not for another few hundred years.
‘The Flats’ in Aberdeen are flat for a reason – a huge tsunami hundreds of years ago…
