Today’s Earthquake Fact
What to do if a tsunami threatens your area: If you are advised to evacuate, do so immediately. Stay away from the area until local authorities say it is safe. Do not be fooled into thinking that the danger is over when a single wave has come and gone - a tsunami is not a single wave but a series of waves. Do not go to the shoreline to watch for a tsunami. When you can see the wave, it is too late to escape it.
