Preparing for a Caribbean Tsunami
Caribbean Tsunami events have swept through our islands at least 75 times over the last 500 years. Some scientists suggest up to 100. That amounts to 10% of all the oceanic tsunamis on our planet!
In 2008, 2011 and March of this year 2013 simulated exercises were run in the region across 32 nations to test rapid response to dangerous Caribbean tsunami events. This demonstrates the serious potential for one of these catastrophes to happen, and for the region to test its own preparedness.
