Any coast is vulnerable to tsunamis. We can get better prepared before the next tsunami by practicing how to protect ourselves when one occurs. Remember, 1) Protect yourself during local earthquakes, 2) Go to high ground or inland, 3) Stay there!
The purpose of TsunamiZone.org is to help people and organizations know where their tsunami zone is located, how to know when a tsunami is on its way, and how to respond. Throughout each year, you are invited to participate in tsunami educational activities and drills, and register their participation on this website.
