action, CANCELLATION of national warnings and ALL CLEAR determination
must be made by national/state/local authorities. The tsunami warning
status reported by National Tsunami Warning Centres (NTWCs) of
IOTWMS member states for their countries can be found at:

Please be aware that dangerous currents can continue for several
hours after the main tsunami waves have passed.

3. TSUNAMI WAVE OBSERVATIONS
Listed below are maximum wave amplitudes recorded at the specified
locations. Note that wave amplitude is measured relative to normal
sea level; it is NOT the crest-to-trough wave height.
