What's a Tsunami?

TSUNAMI WATCH WARNING TSUNAMI WARNING
A tsunami watch is issued when there has been an earthquake that might generate a series of waves...
GET READY!
If a tsunami warning is issued you should
LEAVE COASTAL AREAS IMMEDIATELY!
A strong earthquake may cause tsunamis,
GO TO HIGHER GROUND IMMEDIATELY!

Don't worry, there is a very loud WARNING SIREN located nearby. There will probably be plenty of time to warn residents of any impending tsunamis.

The siren is tested on or about the first day of the month, so don't be alarmed if you hear this. Simply tune in to any radio/TV station for instructions on evacuation procedure. The last tsunami on Maui's northshore was in 1964, caused by an earthquake in Alaska. Residents were warned, and no lives were lost. Strong earthquakes that originate in Hawaii are rare. Even if there is a tsunami warning, it doesn't mean there definitely will be a tsunami. In 1984 there was a "false alarm" and everyone waited for the big one that thankfully never came.
