Exclamation Surviving A Tsunami



I have uploaded the book 'Surviving A Tsunami' to the Ark library under SECURITY>Survival Awarness.

For slow-internet users, the book is in article form on this page;

Play it safe, even if warnings seem ambiguous or you think the danger has passed...

...Expect Many Waves
The next wave may be bigger, and the tsunami may last for hours...

...Head for High Ground and Stay There
Move uphill or at least inland, away from the coast...

...Abandon Belongings
Save your life, not your possessions...

...Donít Count on the Roads
When fleeing a tsunami caused by a nearby earthquake, you may find roads broken or blocked...

...Go to an Upper Floor or Roof of a Building
Only if trapped and unable to reach high ground, go to an upper story of a sturdy building or get on its roof...

...Climb a Tree
As a last resort, climb up a strong tree if trapped on low ground...

...Climb onto Something that Floats
If swept up by a tsunami, look for something to use as a raft.

...Expect the Waves to Leave Debris
A tsunami will leave behind sand, the remains of houses, and bodies...

...Expect Quakes to Lower Coastal Land
A large earthquake can leave nearby coastal areas lowered, allowing tidal water to flood them...

...Expect Company
Shelter your neighbors..."

Great find, Luminari; thank you!
