There the crowd of coastal residents and visitors grows larger by the minute. Soon the sisters are surrounded by too many obviously ill-prepared people, many of whom believe that it will turn out to be just another false alarm, as so many other warnings had proven to be in the past.
The well-supplied sisters decide to leave the throng and risk driving up into the mountains where they think they will be safer not only from a potential tsunami, but from empty-handed people if worse comes to worst. They are soon followed on the narrow, steep logging road by a few others who have their own reasons for leaving the area.
But before the next day is over, even Emily and Laura will find themselves in a desperate fight for survival.
