Tsunami-evacuation planning in coastal communities is typically based on maximum evacuation zones for a single scenario or a composite of sources; however, this approach may over-evacuate a community and overly disrupt the local economy and strain emergency-service resources. To minimize the potential for future over-evacuations, multiple evacuation zones based on arrival time and inundation extent are being developed for California coastal communities. We use the coastal city of Alameda, California (USA), as a case study to explore population and evacuation implications associated with multiple tsunami-evacuation zones. We use geospatial analyses to estimate the number and type of people in each tsunami-evacuation...

This is a 2010 Census block level data table for all blocks in California. It includes data fields P034 and P034A to P034I from summary file one. You will need the parent file 2010 Census Data Field-Descriptors table to decipher the true field names for this table. It can also be joined to the parent file 2010 California Census Blocks Shapefile for use in spatial analyses. Under the Related Items heading on the bottom right of your screen, you can find links to both of these parent files.
