Travel Shot: Tsunami Warning Sign
Just a quick reminder, the beach isn't where you want to be during a tsunami.
Most tsunamis are created by earthquakes and, Japan has been having a few lately.
A tsunami can create a wave, just inches tall or, reach 100 feet into the air.
So, it's a good idea to know where the ground is at least 30 meters above sea level.
Tsunami warnings are announced over most people's cell phones, in Japan.
Signs, posted along highways and, at public buildings, list elevations and evacuation areas.
Learn more about tsunamis at this nifty site.
Tsunami Warnings and Advisories is another good link.
And, here's a good Earthquake Tracker.
Just in case, you want to see, where all the shaking is going on.
