Workshop on tsunami awareness concludes

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Tsunami Awareness Workshop wrapped-up today at the Hilton today.  Homeland Security Advisor Frank Ishizaki says the two-day event is just the beginning of educating the community about tsunami preparedness. The National Weather Service along with experts from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center have been briefing participants about what to expect in the event of a tsunami hitting our area.

The experts played a huge role in the disasters in Chile and American Samoa, and Ishizaki says if an earthquake were to hit Guam that we would only have minutes to respond. He says this is why future planning and more public awareness about tsunamis are necessary.

Meanwhile, a similar tsunami awareness workshop is also scheduled for the CNMI on July 13-14.
