This book contains true stories that illustrate how to survive—and how not to survive—a tsunami. It is meant for people who live, work, or play along coasts that tsunamis may strike. Such coasts surround most of the Pacific Ocean but also include some coastal areas of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans and Mediterranean seas. Although many people used to call tsunamis "tidal waves," they are not related to tides but are rather a series of waves, or "wave trains," usually caused by changes in the level of the sea floor during earthquakes. Tsunamis have also been caused by the eruption of coastal and island volcanoes, submarine landslides, and oceanic impacts of large meteorites. During the 26 December 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami that killed 227,000, tsunamis reached heights 50.6 meters (166 feet) above sea level in Sumatra, Indonesia. In the 2011 Japan Tsunami that killed 17,000, waves reached 38.9 meters (127.6 feet) above sea level and flooded kilometers inland. The stories in this book were selected from interviews with people who survived a Pacific Ocean tsunami in 1960 as well as the 2010 Chilean earthquake and tsunami. Many of these people contended with the waves near their source, along the coast of Chile. Others faced the tsunami many hours later in Hawaii and Japan. Most of the original interviews in Circular 1218 were done decades later in the 1980s and 1990s. The new accounts included in this publication (p. 7 and 8) were compiled between 2009 and 2010 (p. 3, 5, 6, 7, 12, 13 and 19). Also new to this edition is information regarding earthquake sources that can generate tsunamis in Central America and South America, including the Caribbean (p. 4). The stories provide a mixed bag of lessons about tsunami survival. Some illustrate actions that reliably saved lives—heeding natural warnings, abandoning belongings, and going promptly to high ground and staying there until the tsunami is really over. Others describe taking refuge in buildings or trees or floating on debris—tactics that had mixed results and can be recommended only as desperate actions for people trapped on low ground
