Children's book on tsunamis

In August I reviewed Peg Kehret's latest book, Escaping the Giant Wave. It is about a tsunami that hits the Oregon coast. I had never realized that tsunamis were a such a factor of life there. My daughter had recently visited Cannon Beach, OR (before I read the book) and mentioned the prevalence of tsunami warning signs and instructions everywhere.

Kehret's book would be an interesting read for young people who are seeking books related to the news of the day.
