For decades, Shell Beach elementary school has conducted tsunami drills. It’s very similar to a fire drill. The children are warned of a tsunami and instructed to file out of the classroom and board a school bus. Then they’re transported to higher elevations away from the beach.
Shell Beach elementary is one of the few schools in California located in a tsunami zone.
