Cannon Beach, OR To Build "Tsunami Safe Structure"

Eugene (KMTR) - The city of Cannon Beach is moving forward with plans to build a first of its kind tsunami safe structure.

On Monday a model of the structure was put to the test at the Oregon State University Tsunami Wave Basin.

The ten thousand square foot building would be resistant to the forces of a nine-point two magnitude earthquake, and tsunami that follows.

It would also serve as a vertical evacuation shelter.
