Testing: Tsunami Drill

The tsunami warning today in Samoa comes almost exactly five months after the tragic tsunami on the 29th of September last year which killed 149 people on the South Coast.

Although a painful reminder, the tsunami warning would give the local emergency systems a testing opportunity to ensure that their systems are up to par with the rest of the world, and would actually work.

It is no secret that the systems, drill tsunami warning by DMO failed many during the last tsunami, so this should be a good time for DMO to get their act together.

Meanwhile our thoughts are with the people of Chile today.
