PORTLAND -- Smartphone apps are now available that provide tsunami warning information, including a link to the NOAA West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center.
Information is interactive and lets users target specific locations. A "Markers" feature highlights schools, bridges, assembly areas and pertinent government buildings.
The app does not provide push alerts.
The app also provides information about the causes and dangers of tsunamis. Evacuations route brochures can be downloaded from the apps.
