Learn the basics of tsunamis.
In 2011, ITIC created a 6-min video on the basics of tsunamis. Topics cover what a tsunami is, how to recognize a tsunami, and what to do when you know a tsunami is coming. In the video, the Mayor of Poloa, American Samoa recounts his actions when the tsunami hit his village on September 29, 2009. That day, waves were as high at 50 feet elevation.
