Californians may be used to hearing about the threat of potentially deadly earthquakes, but a new study finds that quake-triggered tsunamis pose a greater risk to Southern California than previously thought.
they wish to better determine the hazards and risks Southern California faces from tsunamis, future research should investigate other earthquake and tsunami scenarios in the region, Ryan said. For instance, undersea landslides in submarine canyons in the region could also generate killer waves.

The scientists detailed their findings in the Aug. 18 issue of the journal Geophysical Research Letters.
