Tsunami Alarm System
Everywhere in the world for coastal residents, tourists, business travelers and organizations - your mobile phone becomes a Tsunami Alert System.
For our tsunami warnings, we evaluate earthquake data from several reliable sources. In case of a Tsunami risk, all registered users will receive information about the region, risk level, affected areas, measures to be taken and all-clear signals.
How the Tsunami Alarm System works
If an earthquake has the potential to generate a destructive tsunami because of its magnitude, the depth of the hypocenter and the localization (distinction between seaquake/earthquake), then we send corresponding tsunami alerts to our subscribers.
For severe quakes, which most likely will not trigger a destructive tsunami (e.g. due to its positioning), we do not send alerts.
Tsunami on 23. December 2018, Indonesia
The tsunami that hit the coasts and beaches of the islands of Sumatra and Java on 23 of December 2018, has not been triggered by an earthquake. The eruption of the volcano Anak Krakatau and the subsequent underwater landslide triggered the tsunami. Since there was also high tide at this time of the day, destructive tidal waves could build up.
Since the Tsunami Alarm System is based on earthquake data, but the tsunami was not triggered by an earthquake, an early warning by the Tsunami Alarm System was not possible.
