State Preparedness Measures Before a Tsunami
As tsunamis are natural disasters and cannot be prevented, the next best thing a state can do is be prepared for the eventuality, to ensure safety for its citizens.
Tsunami prone areas can be identified by the state. People living in these areas should be educated about tsunamis. They should be informed about the evacuation routes in case a tsunami hits the coast.
Mock evacuation drills should be conducted periodically so that the people are aware of it.
The state should make arrangements for sufficient provision during emergency.
The people in these tsunami prone areas should know how to contact their friends or relatives who live in risk-free zones, in the event of a tsunami.
