Abstract: This report presents findings from focus groups conducted in April 2016. Data collection took place in both Pacific and Grays Harbor Counties in western Washington (Figure 2.1). Focus group participants were also asked to complete a short questionnaire investigating tsunami awareness and understanding of appropriate preparedness and response actions. The survey was designed to gather additional information from participants with specific reference to tsunami and earthquake hazard preparedness and evacuation behaviours. (auth)
