What You Can Do Before the Next Tsunami

Be Prepared

  • Know the best evacuation route — practice walking your route at night and in stormy weather.
  • Keep a “grab and go” kit by the door with what you need to survive for a day.
  • Create emergency plans and discuss with family, coworkers and neighbors.
  • Consider how to evacuate pets — such as dogs on leashes and cats in crates.
  • Prearrange assistance from neighbors if you need help evacuating.
  • Time is of the essence! The largest tsunami will come from an earthquake you will feel. Evacuate as soon as you can safely move.
