NOAA Webinar: Minutes Matter: Nature’s Warning Signs for Tsunami

May 22 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Cindi Preller, NOAA’s National Weather Service Pacific Tsunami Warning Center
Sponsored by: NOAA

With Cindi Preller, NOAA’s National Weather Service Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Honolulu, Hawai’i May 22, 2020, marks the 60th year since the 1960 Great Chilean earthquake, the largest ever measured at magnitude 9.5, which wreaked havoc across the entire Pacific Basin. Earthquakes and tsunamis have been happening globally since our planet was born. One of the earliest recorded devastating tsunami disasters happened in the Atlantic basin, in 1755, near Lisbon, Portugal. Tsunami have no season and cannot be predicted. Nature, however, does provide us with clues. It is critical that children learn these live-saving facts since they are the best teachers and will pass these tools onto others. This presentation will provide students with tsunami, earthquake, and volcano education through a variety of games and activities. The webinar will last about 45-60 minutes with moderated questions and answers throughout. This webinar will be recorded and posted afterward. (Grades 2-6 but all ages will enjoy).
