Map of regional peak tsunami

Map of regional peak tsunami amplitude in meters resulting from an earthquake on the Pitas Point and Lower Red Mountain fault system. The thin solid black line indicates the coastline and the thick black line indicates the Pitas Point fault trace. The fault trace is where the fault surface intersects the seafloor; it is seen as a straight line in the east-west direction. Note that significant regional tsunami inundation occurs.
