With the completion of tsunami inundation simulations for a distant tsunami originating from the Aleutian Islands and a locally generated tsunami on the Cascadia subduction zone (CSZ), the State of Oregon is now able to provide guidance on the magnitudes and directions of the simulated currents for the Oregon coast and shelf region. Our analyses indicate that ﬁrst wave arrivals for an Aleutian Island event would take place on the north coast, * 3 h 40 min after the start of the earthquake, * 20 min later on the southern Oregon coast. The simulations demonstrated
