With all of the coastline in Ventura, and Santa Barbara Counties, one of the potential natural disasters we face is a tsunami.

Some new software developed by researchers is hoping to answer that question, allowing users to plug in locations to calculate escape routes, and times.
KCLU’s Lance Orozco has the story.
