Tsunamis are among nature’s most powerful and destructive forces. Although they cannot be prevented, there are actions people can take before, during, and after a tsunami that can save lives. Coastal residents and visitors must be educated about their tsunami risk, how to appropriately respond to tsunamis, and how to prepare for potential impacts. Coastal communities play a central role in providing this education.
