Welcome to the TsunamiZone in USVI!

Welcome to the TsunamiZone in USVI!

Do you think that a tsunami can only happen somewhere else? The recent increase of earthquakes in the The U.S. Virgin Islands have reminded us the threat can occur at any moment.

Join us and practice how to survive a tsunami in The U.S. Virgin Islands! The USVI, along with the rest of the Caribbean, are located in a region with high levels of vulnerability and threat for tsunamis.

Tsunami Tips

  • Understand the difference between the terms that identify a tsunami hazard: Advisory, Watch and Warning. Detailed explanation of these terms here
  • Plan to act quickly (Emergency Backpack)
  • If you are in coastal waters and notice a dramatic recession of water from the shoreline, you should heed nature's warning that a tsunami is approaching.
  • Move inland immediately and do not return to the flooded and damaged areas until officials say it is safe to do so.

 

The 2021 Tsunami Awareness Week is Nov 1 - 5.
