Abstract: 

Distant tsunamis are caused by great earthquakes far away from the Oregon coast and will strike approximately 4 hours or more after the earthquake and cause water level and current changes for many hours after first arrival. This document provides response guidance in the event of a distant tsunami for small craft (vessels under 300 gross tons) such as recreational sailing and motor vessels, and commercial fishing vessels.
