Tsunami risk reduction for the United States: a framework for action


Tsunamis are low probability but high impact events, and the Indian Ocean tsunami of December 26, 2004 demonstrated international vulnerability. Over the past year investments in tsunami detection and warning have made individuals safer in their homes and places of work. Working with our national and international partners, we also produced the national plan for tsunami risk reduction to provide a framework for ongoing federal investment in activities that will continue to reduce risks to life and property.
