San Diego County’s coastal communities are not prepared to evacuate should a tsunami hit, according to a county grand jury report that was released today.

The grand jury found that only the city of Coronado had sirens in place to warn residents if a series of tidal waves heads for the local shoreline. Other coastal cities should follow suit, the report states. The report also recommended that cities should include signs detailing escape routes on major thoroughfares and scorned the city of San Diego for not using the same frequency used by county emergency officials.
