How to Prepare for a Tsunami, Nature’s Warning Signs
Tsunami Awareness Month: Part 1 – Basic information about tsunamis
This is the second segment of our Tsunami Awareness Month series. In the first segment, we go over basic information like: What is a tsunami? Evacuation zone maps. FAQs. Tsunami Alert levels and what they mean. Run-up maps.
This portion of the interview discusses the common “natural warning signs” of tsunamis, what to do if a tsunami alert is issued or you think a local tsunami may have been generated, how to prepare for tsunamis and surprising facts about the aftermath of a tsunami.
There was recently a Family Preparedness Workshop held in Haiku. Useful handouts, resources and preparedness information was provided to the public. To access information on what should be in your “Grab-n-Go” binder, a pantry prepper calculator to help estimate how much food you should have in your survival stash, a supplies master list and a worksheet to help you put together a family plan for different scenarios. Mahalo to Summer Starr for providing these amazing resources to Maui Now at this GOOGLE DRIVE link.
