Tropical cyclone and tsunami, actions, precautions, search for shelter, escape routes and rescue methods.

A tropical cyclone is a wind blowing at high speed, over 12 points on the Beaufort scale, which is accompanied by heavy rain and can destroy all insufficiently strong structures. In more moderate latitudes, its development in high atmospheric layers is delayed by prevailing westerly winds..

Tropical cyclone may have different names in different parts of the world..

is a cave. The next most effective will be a trench, ditch, etc. If there is no opportunity to take cover, lie down on the ground to present a minimal target for flying debris and objects. Crawl to the leeward side of any solid shelter, such as an exit to a rock surface or a wide strip of large trees. Beware of small trees and fences that might rip off. Stay where you think the cyclone seems to have passed, it can usually be less than an hour of calm weather until the eye passes, and then the cyclone resumes in the wind in the opposite direction. While outdoors, move to the opposite side of the shelter to get ready for it, or move to the best shelter, if there is one nearby.


Tsunamis are associated with earthquakes beneath the surface of the ocean, which create a series of waves more than 30 meters high and cause serious damage to the coast. They mainly occur in the Pacific region in the XX century, more than 200 of them are registered, their consequences and scale may vary, depending on the direction, shape of the coastline and other factors. A small tsunami on a particular coast can give a huge wave of several kilometers along the coast front. Tsunami warnings are provided by the National Ocean and Atmosphere Administration Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, headquartered in Hawaii.

Not all earthquakes cause tsunamis, but any earthquake can cause it to form. Avoid the coast and try to move to an elevated area when tremors appear. Do not try to guard the tsunami. If you are close enough to see the wave approaching, you have too little time to escape from it if you are not high enough. There is little protection from a moving wall of water. Evacuate.
