Once the Tsunami starts, waves begin to move outward in all directors like we have the whirlpool ripples that are created when one throws a stone in the pool.
The best way to notice a Tsunami wave is that they come ashore ferociously in the form of turbulent waves of water mixed with debris.
Let us look into how we can stay safe during a Tsunami in this article besides covering other important information.
It is less powerful than the utterly devastating 9.1 magnitude Earthquake in Sumatra in 2004 (Indian Ocean Tsunami), which killed more than 3, 00,000 people. Also, if you are living in coastal homes, go for elevated coastal homes; usually Tsunami waves are less than 10 feet.
A strong earthquake that lasts for 20 seconds or more near the coastal area can spell a Tsunami risk.

It was probably due to the fact that earthquakes and tsunamis are not everyone’s favorite topic coupled with the fact that it was a beautiful sunny day on the Oregon Coast that trimmed the number of Newport area residents attending a comprehensive tsunami information meeting Saturday at the Agate Beach Best Western.
The tsunami meeting also offered a wide array of earthquake preparedness devices from automatic natural gas shut-off valves to instructions on how to properly hang pictures and other wall decorations, properly secure bookcases, large screen TVs, appliances and cupboard doors.
Tsunami Advisory: This means an earthquake has occurred, which might manifest into a Tsunami. Also if your water heater is on higher floors, you will be thankful to access to fresh water after the floor or Tsunami.
Devastating as this is and though we can do nothing but reconcile to the fact that man is helpless against the havoc of nature, we can still manage and use our intelligence to protect ourselves from Tsunami.
Priest said that if a tsunami rolls in and then recedes, by no means should people try to immediately return to their homes.

If you are thinking that your homeowners insurance or renters insurance can cover earthquakes and Tsunami, please think again. You can get Tsunami or Earthquake insurance as a distinct policy or in addition to your current homeowners or renters’ cover.
