Safety During Tsunamis

This article starts below.

  • A strong earthquake is a natural tsunami warning. Do not stay in low-lying and seashore areas after an earthquake. A tsunami might occur within minutes.
  • Other natural signs include sudden lowering of the sea level or an unusual rise and fall of the sea level.
  • Fish and other marine life may be exposed when the sea retreats: Never go down to the beach to collect these. Tsunami waves might rush back to anytime and carry you out to sea with great force.
  • Tsunamis are also preceded and/or accompanied by unusual sounds. Be alert for these signs, too.
  • Immediately vacate and seek higher ground. Stay there until all signs of danger have passed.
