Living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, surrounded by volcanoes, people on our island are aware of the possibility of a devastating tsunami. Any notable tsunami affecting the coast, even though the ocean is 75 miles away, might be channeled by that long funnel called the Strait of Juan de Fuca, directly at Whidbey Island. A wall of water would likely crash completely over our little island.
Whenever the topic comes up, I always point out the only tsunami survival tool I know of: Zorb. What's a Zorb? It's a toy, of sorts -- a big plastic ball, suspended by bungee cords within a huge plastic ball.
Invented in New Zealand, Zorbing is now available in the US, in the Great Smokey Mountains of Tennessee. I want one, but not so much for fun (although they look like tons of fun). I want one to save myself in case of tsunami.
