"No significant inundation is expected, but low-lying coastal areas and beaches are at risk. The provincial emergency system says experts predict the first wave arrival time of 15:11 PST at the southern B.C. coastline. It says local governments may consider activating their emergency plans, including evacuating marinas, beaches and other areas that are below normal high-tide mark. "
