Warning sign

So how do you know if a tsunami is coming?

Survival Agent

Knowing about tsunami and how they happen is the first stage in Survival Agent training. The next stage is to learn about the signs that will warn you about a tsunami before it happens. You can use these signs, either man-made or natural, to warn your community in case of a tsunami and to make sure that they act quickly enough to avoid disaster.

Abbey Wutzler had learnt about tsunami at school and was able to save the lives of her family when a tsunami struck Samoa on 29 September 2009.

As you listen to Abbey’s story in the video below, see if you can find answers to these questions:
  • What did Abbey recognise as natural warning signs?
  • What about Max, Abbey’s brother – what did he say the tsunami looked like?
