New tsunami maps were released today by the state, but it appears there are only minor differences for Los Angeles neighborhoods in comparison to maps released by the city years ago. Nevertheless, if you live near the coast, it doesn't hurt to check the maps out just to be sure.

As the LA Times notes, many inland areas are potentially in danger due to waterways liek the Santa Ana River or port channels.

To see maps by county, go to the California Department of Conservation's webpage.
