604 Now

How Your City Would Look If A Tsunami Hit

At one point or another, we’ve all wondered if our fates would be sealed if a tsunami hit the 604. Those living in Richmond know there odds are next to none and they’d be under water like Sponge Bob in no time.. However, if a Tsunami was to hit us and sea levels rose by 5m, the map below illustrates what to expect:

  • South Delta (Tswassen & Ladner) would be joining Richmond while North Delta would barely survive.
  • White Rock & Cloverdale would suffer severe damage.
  • Surrey would face a big hit in Mud Bay, East Newton & Fraser Heights.
  • The Lougheed area and Pitt Meadows would drown and take half of Maple Ridge.
  • Not much would get past the Coquitlam & Port Moody coasts.
  • New West, Burnaby & Vancouver would only face major blows along Marine Drive and waterfront streets in downtown.
  • Langley looks the safest.
