World Tsunami Awareness Day
The word “tsunami” comprises the Japanese words “tsu” (meaning harbour) and “nami” (meaning wave). A tsunami is a series of enormous waves created by an underwater disturbance usually associated with earthquakes occurring below or near the ocean. Tsunami waves often look like walls of water and can attack the shoreline and be dangerous for hours, with waves coming every 5 to 60 minutes.
In December 2015, the UN General Assembly designated November 5 as World Tsunami Awareness Day. The day is calling on countries, international bodies and civil society to raise tsunami awareness and share innovative approaches to risk reduction.
