Marine Tsunami:

  • Get out of the water and move away from the immediate water’s edge of harbours, coastal estuaries, rock platforms, and beaches.
  • Boats in harbours, estuaries and in shallow coastal water should return to shore – secure your boat and move away from the waterfront.
  • Vessels which are already at sea should stay off the shore in deep water until further notice.
  • Aware your neighbours and friends which stay near the tsunami area about the tsunami.

Land Tsunami:

  • Move to a higher ground and stay there until the tsunami is over.

  • Do not go to the coast.
