Gabon has an area of 267,667 square kilometers - about 2/3 the size of California. The
population of Gabon is about 1,575,000 including refugees from the Republic of the Congo.
About 86% of Gabonese live in cities. Libreville itself has a population 650,000. From a
tsunami perspective it is likely powerful waves would reverse the flow of the Komo river all
the way to Kango. Analogous to Maputo's demographic dominance, the next largest city in
Gabon is Port-Gentil with just over 120,000 people.
