When a tsunami warning is issued, what do you do? Find out about the warning signs, how to prepare and stay safe.
If you are traveling to areas that are known to be tsunami hotspots, it's vital to be prepared, and be alert to any warnings made by local authorities.
Inside your travel pack, make sure you keep an emergency kit.
Stock food, water, climate-appropriate clothing, and if possible a small first aid kit – keep it packed with enough essentials for a few days.
Get to high ground as far inland as possible. If the feeling is that a tsunami is about to hit your area, it's better to be safe than sorry.
Stay away from the coast and on high ground for for up to 8 hours or longer.
Be extremely cautious with warnings and warning systems.
Tsunami hazard zones usually have signs to direct you to safety. Keep an eye out for them.
If you don’t have time to evacuate and get to high ground, go up to a third floor or higher in a sturdy building.
Grab something floating if you’re in the water. And try your best not to swallow any of the water.
