  • If You See a Tsunami, Never Do Certain Things!


    A tsunami is a string of immense waves that appear after earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, underwater landslides, and even asteroid impacts. The largest mega-tsunami wave ever recorded was documented on July 9, 1958, in Lituya Bay, in Alaska. The height of the wave reached a stunning 1,720 ft.

    This situation is no joke, and as soon as you find out that a tsunami is coming, you must act immediately to save your life. Here’s what you need to do right away.

    - The water may suddenly drain, showing the ocean floor, or, vice versa, a wall of water may appear on the horizon.
    - If animals unexpectedly group together, hide in different nooks, leave the area, or show extreme anxiety, these may be signs of an approaching natural disaster.
    - As soon as you hear a tsunami alert, don't wait for even a second - evacuate immediately!
    - Move as far away from the shore as you can, heading toward high hills, mountains, or a forest.
    - If possible, go at least 2 miles inland and 100 feet above sea level.
    - Keep in mind that roads often get wiped out by tsunamis; therefore, after everything’s done, you may have trouble finding your way back.
    - Stay away from power lines, walls, bridges, and whatnot. Even if these constructions look sturdy enough, they can collapse during the aftershock.
    - Evacuation routes in potentially dangerous areas are often marked by a special sign with a wave and an arrow on it.
    - Even when you think that everything's over, don't be too quick to relax. Tsunamis come in waves, and there may be dozens of them.
    - Try to find reliable information by listening to radio updates.
    - Don't forget about the risk of electrocution. The water can be electrically charged by damaged underground power lines.
    - Far from the shore, such waves usually travel at a breakneck speed of up to 500 miles per hour. But when a wave is getting closer to the coast, it slows down to 30 miles per hour and grows in height.
    - If a tsunami is drawing nearer while you're far from the shore, paddle toward the horizon, to the deep sea.
    - A tsunami’s waves can travel at a speed of 20 to 30 miles per hour and reach a height of 10 to 100 feet.
    - About 80% of all the tsunamis are born in the Pacific Ocean's Ring of Fire, which is a seismically active zone with 452 volcanoes and the world's largest number of earthquakes.
