    Tsunami Fact vs Fiction. Fiction. Tsunamis are giant walls of water. Fact. Occasionally, tsunamis can form walls of water (known as tsunami bores) but tsunamis normally have the appearance of a fast-rising and fast-receding flood.

Especially vulnerable are the five Pacific States — Hawaii, Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and California — and the U.S. Caribbean islands. In the wake of the Indian Ocean disaster, the United States is redoubling its efforts to assess the Nation's tsunami hazards, provide tsunami education, and improve its system for tsunami warning.

(Earthquake Science Center, Univ. of Alaska, Fairbanks).   Note: This course is on a non-federal government website operated by the Cooperative Program for Operational Meteorology, Education, and Training (COMET).. This module is designed to help emergency managers prepare their communities for tsunamis. Lessons include basic tsunami science, hazards produced by tsunamis, regional U.S. tsunami risks, the tsunami warning system, .

    Understanding risk is a prerequisite to effectively preparing and warning endangered people of potential and imminent tsunamis. To that effect, officials must understand in advance (1) where and to what extent tsunami inundation may occur and the amount of time before waves arrive, (2) the characteristics of the population and communities in tsunami-prone areas, and (3) how prepared.
