Default Tonga/Samoa Tsunami photos - Dramatic

Greetings to the forum. I came over here to see what was being said about ER, but as long as I'm here I'll share some Tsunami photos. We were in Tonga for the Tsunami and ran around afterward and collected as many first hand photos as I could.

My question is if anybody has any good tactics for when a Tsunami warning takes place?

The full collection can be seen here -

Welcome! Those are some crazy photos! Amazing! How did that slogan work out......... "We sail in safe, flat protected warm water." Thanks for sharing!

if your in a boat head out to sea the deeper the water the less effect the waves will have.

High ground would be my first thought those homes on the hill are fine.
