Natural warnings:

If you experience any of the following:

- A strong earthquake (ie. it's hard to stand up) or

- A weak, rolling earthquake that lasts a minute or more, or

- The ocean behaves strangely (unusual noises or the ocean rushing in or out)

Immediately evacuate the Red, Orange and Yellow Zones. Do not wait for official warnings, as a tsunami may be only minutes away.

Official warnings:

Official warnings will be issued by Civil Defence Emergency Management officials.  Follow official instructions & evacuate from the zone(s) stated in the warning and stay out until the official "all-clear" is given.

Do not go boating, fishing or swimming during a tsunami warning, and stay away from beaches and out of the water for at least 24 hours after the warning has been cancelled as tidal currents may still be unpredictable.
