Nature Calls: Be Prepared for Tsunami

Hawaii, USA

There is a reason why April 1 is the beginning of Tsunami Preparation Month: Today is the anniversary of the deadliest tsunami in recorded Hawaii history. It was on April 1, 1946 that an 8.6-magnitude earthquake near Alaska triggered a deadly wave that claimed the lives of 159 people in Hawaii. Use this time of raised awareness during April to plan an evacuation route if you live, commute, vacation or work near the ocean. What would you pack for a quick retreat? Be thinking now!
