    Here's how quickly Tsunami waves could move after a major earthquake in Washington

    New maps from the Department of Natural Resources show where, and how fast, tsunami waves could inundate Washington's coast after a major earthquake.

    OLYMPIA, Wash. — Maps recently released by the Washington Department of Natural Resources shed light on what Washington's coast might be facing in the aftermath of a 9.0 earthquake. Experts say a major earthquake is likely to happen within the next 50 years.

    A tsunami triggered by a magnitude 9.0 earthquake would cover low-lying coastal communities under as much as 30 to 100 feet of water, depending on the area, maps show.

    However, the maps break ground in other ways - they also look at how fast that water will move.
