    U.S. Tsunami Preparedness Contents Letter 1 Results in Brief 5 Background 9 The Tsunami Hazard Is Greatest in the Pacific States and Caribbean Territories, but the Potential Impacts Have Not Been Comprehensively Assessed 14 Federal Warning Centers Quickly Detect Potential Tsunamis, but Warning Systems Have Limitations To enhance its tsunami hazard mitigation efforts, NOAA expanded NTHMP membership from the 5 Pacific Coast states to all 29 at-risk coastal U.S. states and territories, changed how it funds mitigation projects in states and territories, and restructured NTHMP to . The United States ranks third, behind Indonesia and Japan, in the number of historically active volcanoes, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. There are 65 volcanoes in the United States and its territories that scientists consider active, including Mount St. Helens.

Based solely on the known historical record, the qualitative tsunami hazard is labeled as very low to low on the Atlantic coast and very low on the Gulf coast.

It is also clear that Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the U.S. west coast face a much higher tsunami hazard.

TsunamiReady is a voluntary community recognition program that promotes tsunami hazard preparedness as an active collaboration among federal, state/territorial and local emergency management agencies, community leaders and the public.

The main goal of the program is to improve public safety before, during and after tsunami emergencies. This report presents a general methodology that recognizes some of the unique challenges in conducting tsunami hazard assessment for the site of a Nuclear Power Plant (NPP).

These challenges relate to the fact that both the peak and minimum values of metrics computed in tsunami hazard assessments can negatively affect NPPs. § National tsunami hazard mitigation program (a) Program required.

The Administrator, in coordination with the Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the heads of such other agencies as the Administrator considers relevant, shall conduct a community-based tsunami hazard mitigation program to improve tsunami preparedness and resiliency of.

The main rationale for this broadened scope was to address Section 5(a) in P.L.which called for “a community-based tsunami hazard mitigation program to improve tsunami preparedness of at-risk areas in the United States and its territories.”. Mitigation activities are critical for preparing local governments and community populations for the potential of tsunami impact.

coast, but the hazard level varies. These hazard levels are based largely on the historical record (through ), geological evidence, and location relative to tsunami sources, all of which provide clues to what might happen in the future.

effectively. Thus they should be considered at least for local tsunami hazard assessments. Tsunami hazard assessment While tsunami hazard assessments were previously routinely developed using worst-case scenarios, probabilistic approaches for estimating tsunami hazard and risk are progressively becoming the new standard.

This is the largest recorded earthquake in U.S. history (magnitude ) and the second largest in world history. The tsunamis devastated coastal communities in Alaska and caused approximately $1 billion ($) in damage along the west coasts.

In the United States, much of the tsunami preparedness and mitigation work is conducted through two programs: The National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program is a federal/state partnership led by NOAA that also includes the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the U.S.

Geological Survey, and 28 U.S. states and territories. Through collaboration, coordination, and support to partner states. HAZUS Resources. Frequently Asked Questions. Training. Case Studies and Success Stories Implementing the HAZUS-MH method into state mitigation plans has been useful for determining potential physical, economic, and social losses.

FEMA produces several success stories each year to highlight outstanding work by HAZUS User Groups (HUGs) and HAZUS. An assessment of the tsunami hazard in the United States shows that while a tsunami can strike any U.S.

coast, the hazard level varies. The hazard levels shown below are based largely on the historical record (through ), geological evidence, and location relative to tsunami sources, all of which provide clues to what might happen in the future.

Conclusion: The United States lacks a national tsunami risk assessment that characterizes the hazards posed by tsunamis, inventories the populations and social assets threatened by tsunamis, measures the preparedness and ability of individuals and communities for successful tsunami evacuations, and forecasts expected losses.

This information is. The National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program (NTHMP) is a Federal and State program designed to protect people and reduce property losses in the event of a tsunami. Led by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the NTHMP consists of other primary participants, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

The relative tsunami hazard of local and distant sources varies with the region according to a nationwide assessment prepared a few years ago for the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program (NTHMP).

2 Distant sources account for most of the tsunami hazard in Hawaii, while local sources predominate in Alaska. The American Samoa Department of Health (ASDOH) requested assistance from the US Public Health Service (USPHS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to assess the public health needs and health status of the affected by: National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program Preparing for Tsunami Hazards The Tsunami Hazard A tsunami is a series of pressure waves caused by a sudden shift in the ocean floor.

Such shifts are usually caused by earthquakes, but they can also be caused by undersea landslides or slumps, volcanoes, or even meteor impacts.
