NOAA Information on Tsunamis
NOAAWatch Information on Tsunamis
  • Update on Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Event
    A Tsunami Warning continues for the coastal areas of California and Oregon from Point Concepcion, California, to the Oregon-Washington border. A Tsunami Advisory continues for the coastal areas of California from the California-Mexico Border to Point Concepcion, California, and coastal areas of Washington - British Columbia and Alaska from the Oregon-Washington Border to Attu, Alaska, and the entire state of Hawaii. Elsewhere in the Pacific, a Tsunami Warning remains in effect for Japan, Russia, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, Niue, Tonga, Mexico, French Polynesia, Pitcairn /Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Antarctica, Panama, Honduras, Chile, Ecuador, Colombia, Peru
  • Tsunami warning issued following Magnitude 8.8 earthquake
    A Magnitude 8.8 earthquake early Saturday morning off the coast of Chile generated a tsunami, resulting in widespread tsunami warnings, watches, and advisories warnings, including Hawaii.
  • Samoan Earthquake and Tsunami
    A major earthquake with magnitude near 8.0 struck at 148 pm EDT Tuesday about 125 miles south of the Samoan Islands in the South Central Pacific Ocean. The NOAA National Weather Service (NWS) Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC) in Ewa Beach, Hawaii issued the first of a series of Regional Tsunami Warning messages at 204 pm EDT. The initial warning included American Samoa, Western Samoa, Tonga, and other nearby islands. A Tsunami Watch was issued for areas further removed from the epicenter, including Hawaii. The first in a series of at least four waves hit the Samoas shortly after 2 pm EDT (7 am Samoa Standard Time). News reports have been mentioning major damage on the south shores of the islands. CNN International was reporting at least 84 fatalities as of early Wednesday morning - 55 in Western Samoa, 22 in American Samoa, and 7 in Tonga.
  • A Tsunami Advisory has been issued for the state of Hawaii
    The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has issued a non-expanding regional Tsunami Warning for a part of the Pacific near an earthquake centered off the west coast of the South Island New Zealand. Based on all available data there is no destructive tsunami threat to Hawaii. However, some coastal areas in Hawaii could experience small non-destructive sea level changes and strong or unusual currents lasting up to several hours.
  • U.S. Tsunami Buoy Network Completed
    NOAA has deployed the final tsunami detection buoys in the South Pacific, completing the buoy network and bolstering the U.S. tsunami warning system. This network of 39 stations provides real-time data to the Tsunami Warning System providing coastal communities with faster and more accurate tsunami warnings.
  • NOAA Helps Prepare East Coast Communities For Tsunami, Storm-Driven Flood Threats
    A team of scientists NOAA’s National Geophysical Data Center and the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences, both based in Boulder, Colo., took a crucial step forward in NOAA’s effort to prepare U.S. coastal communities, including Long Island, Atlantic City, and Daytona Beach for potentially deadly tsunami and storm-driven flooding. The scientists created high-resolution digital elevation models, or DEMs, for the three cities. The DEMs are constructed from near-shore seafloor depth and land elevation data to create a detailed representation of coastal relief. They provide the underlying framework necessary to accurately forecast the magnitude and extent of coastal flooding during a tsunami or storm surge event.
  • Tsunami Warning Centers
    The West Coast/ Alaska Tsunami Warning Center provides tsunami warning guidance for all U.S. coastal states (except Hawaii), the Caribbean Sea, and the Canadian coastal provinces. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center provides tsunami warning guidance for Hawaii and countries in the Pacific Ocean, and Indian Ocean.

    NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
    500 PM PDT WED JUL 30 2014

    For the eastern North Pacific...east of 140 degrees west longitude:

    1. Shower activity associated with a broad area of low pressure located
    about 1100 miles southwest of the southern tip of the Baja
    California peninsula remains disorganized. However, environmental
    conditions appear favorable for gradual development of this system
    during the next several days while it moves westward or
    west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...30 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.

    2. Disorganized cloudiness and showers are associated with an area of
    low pressure located about 1700 miles southwest of the southern tip
    of the Baja California peninsula. Some development of this
    system is possible during the next several days before environmental
    conditions become less conducive this weekend.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.

    3. An area of low pressure is forecast to form well southwest of the
    southern coast of Mexico in a few days. Some gradual development of
    this system is possible after that time.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.

    800 PM EDT WED JUL 30 2014

    For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

    1. Shower activity associated with a well-defined low pressure system
    located about 900 miles east of the southern Windward Islands has
    changed little over the past several hours. However, environmental
    conditions are marginally conducive for the development of this
    system into a tropical depression during the next couple of days.
    Interests in the Lesser Antilles should monitor the progress of this
    system as it moves west-northwestward near 15 mph.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.
