How To Protect Yourself From A Tsunami.
Most of the time, a tsunami is caused by earthquakes.
An earthquake that lasts for as long as 10-15 minutes is usually followed by a tsunami.
Duck, cover and hold while the earthquake occurs, and then evacuate.
Be carefully of damaged buildings, power lines, or falling debris.
When the tsunami strikes, forget about your possessions, the most important thing to do is to save your life, and of others if you can.
Do not think about getting possessions as this may hinder you from evacuating as fast as you can.
A survival kit is more than enough.
Stay on high ground for a while.
A tsunami is not a one-hit type of natural disaster.
It is a series of tall waves.
Usually, a tsunami lasts up to 3 days.
To be safe, stay on high ground for at least 4-5 days.
Be cautious about status reports given by the authorities.
Do not immediately leave the safe area — some people died due to inaccurate alerts given by the authorities.
