As a small coastal town, hundreds of miles from major urban centers, Crescent City is off the radar of your average American, but in a room full of tsunami experts, everyone knows this place.

After all, 37 tsunamis have been recorded along our shores since 1933, and in the past 150 years no other community in the contiguous U.S. has sustained more damage from them than Crescent City.
