    I would think a mega- tsunami would be hundreds or thousands of times higher, hence the "mega" prefix.

    I would, I live over 600 miles from an ocean at an altitude of over 5000 ft.

    South of San Francisco in healthy times there is a surfing competition when the 30 foot waves come. Most years but not every year. North Shore in Hawaii gets them every winter. No, a Mega Tsunami is more like 100 foot waves and more. A different beast entirely.

    You certainly can survive, provided you are far enough inland and/or high enough to avoid being caught in the water.

    Pretty simple.

    Depends on where you are:

    Santa Monica pier--perhaps

    Santa Monica beach--perhaps not

    Mt. Wilson--yes

    Pacific Coast Highway--no

    Yes.  30 feet is not a mega tsunami.   (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWzdgBNfhQU

    )  The wall between the bay and the city was higher than 40 feet and it was over topped by meters of water.  Please watch the 2011 tsumami in Japan.  the Nova progam was fabulous.
