Welcome to the TsunamiZone!

Graphic with instructions to Drop, Cover, and Hold on during earthquakes, then Get to High Ground when a tsunami is imminent, and then to Stay There as tsunami waves may arrive for hours

Everyone, everywhere should know how to be prepared for tsunamis and what to do to be safe. This is true for people who live or work near the ocean, but also for anyone who may visit someday. Are you in the Zone? provides suggestions and resources for your family or organization to "know your zone" and to learn how to be safe.

Be counted among people and organizations worldwide by registering your 2016 tsunami preparedness activities!
