There have been no mandatory evacuation orders for the San Francisco Bay Area.  Marla Tellez is at the San Francisco Emergency Management headquarters, and she reports officials there are calling the tsunami warnings "overstated".

San Mateo County is treating the situation more cautiously, issuing a suggested evacuation of certain areas.  That warning is listed below.

All beaches and low lying coastal areas should be evacuated immediately.  
•Low-lying areas west of Highway 1,  move to high ground east of the highway .  
•Linda Mar area of Pacifica, evacuate to the east of Adobe Drive.  
•El Granada, evacuate to the east of Coronado Street  
If possible, leave the coast.  Law enforcement personnel will direct you.   If you have no other place to go, evacuation shelters are being established at: 
-Terra Nova High School
-Oceana High School
-Farallone View Elementary School
-Pescadero High School 
Stay tuned to local radio stations for additional information. Do not dial 9-1-1 unless you have a life-threatening emergency.
