Unofficial/informal warnings

You may also be notified of an impending tsunami through media coverage, particularly international media coverage. News travels particularly quickly over the internet. You may even receive informal warnings from friends and family overseas who have heard a broadcast. People nearest to the coastline may also be able to relay messages that a tsunami has arrived. Warnings from friends, other members of the public, international media, internet etc may be correct. Recently, many people have received the most up to date information in an emergency via twitter and SMS.
Below are some social media sites with emergency services information:
