Most tsunamis or tidal waves are caused by undersea earthquakes, but landslides, volcanic activity, certain types of weather, and meteorites can also cause tsunamis. While tsunamis cannot be prevented, there are things you can do that could save your life and the lives of your loved ones.

If you live in or visit a tsunami hazard zone, the NWS offers the following preparedness tips to help keep you safe:

    Get a NOAA Weather Radio - National Weather Radio broadcasts official warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

  • Sign up for local alerts and warnings to receive timely information about weather conditions or other emergency events.
  • Verify with your service provider that your mobile devices receive wireless emergency alerts, which are emergency messages sent by authorized government alerting authorities through your mobile carrier.
  • Make an emergency plan that includes family communication.
  • Map out evacuation routes to safe places on high ground or inland. The community may have evacuation routes and assembly areas. Find out if the community is TsunamiReady.
  • Put together a portable disaster supplies kit with items you and your family (including pets) may need in an emergency. Prepare kits for work and cars, too.
