Guam - Local law enforcement agencies and Government of Guam employees as well as the public are getting a refresher course on how to be ready in the event of a tsunami. Laura Kong, director of the International Tsunami Information Center, says the training for Guam and the CNMI this week is to ensure preparedness plans are in place.

"There have been a lot of very good questions both from the experience and also that they do have basic knowledge of what a tsunami is so very good questions on details of the impact here," she said.

The next step is for participants to spread the information that they learned...she says tsunamis are unpredictable and could happen anytime of the year.
