2014 Fall Meeting Section: Natural Hazards Session: Advances in Tsunami Hazard Mitigation and Response I Title: THE PUERTO RICO COMPONENT OF THE NATIONAL TSUNAMI HAZARD AND MITIGATION PROGRAM (PR-NTHMP) Authors: Huerfano Moreno, V A, University of Puerto Rico Mayaguez, Mayaguez, PR, United States Hincapie -Cardenas, C M, University of Puerto Rico Mayaguez, Mayaguez, PR, United States Abstract: Tsunami hazard assessment, detection, warning, education and outreach efforts are intended to reduce losses to life and property. The Puerto Rico Seismic Network (PRSN) is participating in an effort with local and federal agencies, to developing tsunami hazard risk reduction strategies under the National Tsunami Hazards and Mitigation Program (NTHMP). This grant supports the TsunamiReady program which is the base of the tsunami preparedness and mitigation in PR. The Caribbean region has a documented history of damaging tsunamis that have affected coastal areas. The seismic water waves originating in the prominent fault systems around PR are considered to be a near-field hazard for Puerto Rico and the Virgin islands (PR/VI) because they can reach coastal areas within a few minutes after the earthquake. Sources for local, regional and tele tsunamis have been identified and modeled and tsunami evacuation maps were prepared for PR. These maps were generated in three phases: First, hypothetical tsunami scenarios on the basis of the parameters of potential underwater earthquakes were developed. Secondly, each of these scenarios was simulated. The third step was to determine the worst case scenario (MOM). The run-ups were drawn on GIS referenced maps and aerial photographs. These products are being used by emergency managers to educate the public and develop mitigation strategies. Online maps and related evacuation products are available to the public via the PR-TDST (PR Tsunami Decision Support Tool). Currently all the 44 coastal municipalities were recognized as TsunamiReady by the US NWS. The main goal of the program is to declare Puerto Rico as TsunamiReady, including two cities that are not coastal but could be affected by tsunamis. Based on these evacuation maps, tsunami signs were installed, vulnerability profiles were created, communication systems to receive and disseminate tsunami messages were installed in each TWFP, and tsunami response plans were approved. Also, the existing tsunami protocol and criteria in the PR/VI was updated. This paper describes the PR-NTHMP project, including the real time earthquake and tsunami monitoring as well as the specific protocols used to broadcast tsunami messages. The paper highlights tsunami hazards assessment, detection, warning, education and outreach in Puerto Rico.

Public Policy Issues Associated with Tsunami Hazard Mitigation, Response and Recovery:...
2014 Fall Meeting Section: Natural Hazards Session: Advances in Tsunami Hazard Mitigation and Response I Title: Public Policy Issues Associated with Tsunami Hazard Mitigation, Response and Recovery: Transferable Lessons from Recent Global Disasters Authors: Johnson, L, Self Employed, Washington, DC, United States Abstract: Since 2004, a sequence of devastating tsunamis has taken the lives of more than 300,000 people worldwide. The path of destruction left by each is typically measured in hundreds of meters to a few kilometers and its breadth can extend for hundreds even thousands of kilometers, crossing towns and countries and even traversing an entire oceanic basin. Tsunami disasters in Indonesia, Chile, Japan and elsewhere have also shown that the almost binary nature of tsunami impacts can present some unique risk reduction, response, recovery and rebuilding challenges, with transferable lessons to other tsunami vulnerable coastal communities around the world. In particular, the trauma can motivate survivors to relocate homes, jobs, and even whole communities to safer ground, sometimes at tremendous social and financial costs. For governments, the level of concentrated devastation usually exceeds the local capacity to respond and thus requires complex inter-governmental arrangements with regional, national and even international partners to support the recovery of impacted communities, infrastructure and economies. Two parallel projects underway in California since 2011—the SAFRR (Science Application for Risk Reduction) tsunami scenario project and the California Tsunami Policy Working Group (CTPWG)—have worked to digest key lessons from recent tsunami disasters, with an emphasis on identifying gaps to be addressed in the current state and federal policy framework to enhance tsunami risk awareness, hazard mitigation, and response and recovery planning ahead of disaster and also improve post-disaster implementation practices following a future California or U.S. tsunami event.

Assessment of Landslide-Tsunami Hazard for the Gulf of Mexico Using a Probabilistic Approach
2014 Fall Meeting Section: Natural Hazards Session: Advances in Tsunami Hazard Mitigation and Response II Title: Assessment of Landslide-Tsunami Hazard for the Gulf of Mexico Using a Probabilistic Approach Authors: Shigihara, Y, Civil and Environmental Engineering, National Defense Academy, Yokosuka, Japan Horrillo, J J, Texas A & M University at Galveston, Galveston, TX, United States Parambath, L, Texas A & M University at Galveston, Galveston, TX, United States Pampell, A, Texas A & M University at Galveston, Galveston, TX, United States Abstract: The devastating consequences of recent tsunami events in Indonesia (2004) and Japan (2011) have prompted a scientific response in assessing tsunami hazard even in regions where an apparent low risk or/and lack of complete historical tsunami record exists. Although a great uncertainty exists regarding the recurrence rate of large-scale tsunami events in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) due to sparsity of data, geological and historical evidences indicate that the most likely tsunami hazard could come from a submarine landslide triggered by a moderate earthquake. Under these circumstances, the assessment of the tsunami hazard in the region could be better accomplished by means of a probabilistic approach to identify tsunami sources. This study aims to customize for the GOM a probabilistic hazard assessment based on recurrence rates of tsunamigenic submarine mass failures (SMFs). The Monte Carlo Simulation (MCS) technique is employed utilizing matrix correlations for landslide parameters to incorporate the uncertainty related to location/water-depth and landslide dimension based on lognormal/normal distributions obtained from observed data. Along fixed transects over the continental slope of the GOM, slide angle of failure, sediment properties and seismic peak horizontal accelerations (PHA) are determined by publicly available data. These parameter values are used to perform slope stability analyses in randomly generated translational SMFs obtained from the MCS technique. Once the SMF is identified as tsunamigenic for a given PHA recurrence rate, a preliminary tsunami amplitude can be estimated using empirical formulations. Thus, the annual probability of a tsunamigenic SMF is determined by the joint probability of failure with the annual PHA. By using the probabilistic approach, we identified tsunami sources with recurrence rates from few thousands to 10,000 years which produce extreme wave amplitudes for each transect. The most likely extreme tsunamigenic SMF events for a given transect are then modeled to determine hazard to specific coastal locations, including maximum runup heights, inundation depth/extent, and strong currents affecting communities and infrastructure, thus mitigating the impact of tsunamis according to the guidelines of the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program.

Tsunami hazard and risk assessment (Webinar)
Presentation by Finn Lovholt (NGI) This is an excerpt from the launch webinar of the National Disaster Risk Assessment Words into Action Guidelines (https://www.preventionweb.net/publications/view/52828). The guidelines focus on Sendai Framework’s first Priority for Action: Understanding Disaster Risk, which is the basis for all measures on disaster risk reduction and is closely linked to the other three Priorities for Action. Globally, tsunami risks are dominated by rare but often very destructive events. Assessment of tsunami hazard and risk is required to support preparedness measures and effective disaster reduction. In most coastal locations, highly destructive tsunami events are not well represented in historical records, which tend to be short compared to the return period of large tsunamis (hundreds to thousands of years). In this way, tsunamis are different from more frequent hazards (such as floods or cyclones) for which historical records often provide a more useful reference for understanding the hazard and its impacts. The “low frequency/high consequences” character of tsunamis induces considerable uncertainty into tsunami hazard and risk assessments. Recent history highlights that these uncertainties are commonly underestimated. The 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and the 2011 Tohoku tsunami caused more than 225,000 and 19,800 fatalities, and US$ 9.9 billion and US$ 210 billion in direct monetary losses, respectively. But the impact of those events was not widely anticipated or planned for, although these two events constituted a major proportion of the global fatalities and economic losses due to natural hazards in the last 100 years.

Education for disaster preparedness
Education for disaster preparedness can provide life-saving and life-sustaining information and skills that protect in particular children and young people during and after emergencies. Disasters are not natural, they only occur when people lack preparedness or the ability to cope with hazards: it is the combination of an exposed and ill-prepared population or community with a hazard event that results in a disaster. Education therefore has a vital role to play in preparing communities and building disaster resilient societies and safe lives. UNESCO provides tools for integrating Disaster Risk Reduction into schools and provides training for teachers and educators on how to educate children and youth to prepare for disasters.

APA National Planning Awards 2012 - Florida Statewide Regional Evacuation Study Program
Best Practices in Hazard Mitigation and Disaster Planning Florida Statewide Regional Evacuation Study Program Florida Florida has long been a victim of disastrous hurricane seasons leaving the coastline, infrastructure, and citizens in dismay. The hurricanes during 2004 and 2005 were the most deadly with nearly 3,000 deaths and causing $50 billion in damages. The Florida Legislature appropriated $29 million to conduct a statewide study to improve evacuation planning and emergency disaster response. The primary purpose of The Florida Statewide Regional Evacuation Study Program was to map future evacuation strategies while incorporating traffic, housing, and other community improvements. The study enabled projection estimates for evacuation times and shelter demands by region and county. An important aspect of the study was using Light Detection and Ranging data (LiDar) to provide elevation data for every six inches of the Florida's coastline. This data greatly improves the accuracy of the SLOSH (Sea, Lake and Overland Surge from Hurricanes) Model and Surge Inundation Model results. The program resulted in an evacuation study for each one of Florida's 11 regions that is unique to that particular region. Additionally, Florida included other natural disasters in the study crucial to its region with the ability to analyze hazards such as wildfires and inland flooding.

Massive Quakes Happening all over the world. If they explode they will cause a black sky , NWO ? Is This all Gonna happen in 2016 ? Could all this be happening because of Planet x? Leaked info shows it may ! The threat of a massive earthquake and tsunami have been looming over the Pacific Northwest for decades. Now, experts are taking it seriously. This summer the Federal Emergency Management Administration (Fema) is conducting a large-scale drill to see if it's ready for worst. The test will simulate a 9.0 magnitude quake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone, followed by a tsunami that could create waves more than 50ft-high. Researchers say such an event of this kind occurs roughly every 400-600 years, and the area is overdue a similar quake that could leave thousands dead or displaced. The last time the region faced a 'Big One' was in 1906 when San Andres unleashed an earthquake that killed roughly 3,000 people. This summer's drill, dubbed Cascadia Rising, will test to see how local and state emergency responders, Fema, and a number of military groups work together. The simulation will run from June 7-10, 2016, and will use past events to help plan the future response. In April, researchers speaking at the Seismological Society of America's (SSA) 2016 Annual Meeting, in Reno, Nevada said plans for managing tsunami risk on the West Coast are still evolving. Meanwhile, geologists are searching for evidence of past tsunamis in the region to help them refine their estimates of tsunami risk. There is, for instance, the evidence for frequent and large earthquakes and tsunamis occurring within the past 2,000 years in parts of the Eastern Aleutian Islands. There are signs that these earthquakes have spanned the boundary between the locked and creeping portions of the region's megathrust fault. Earthquakes in the area could cause significant tsunami effects across the Pacific, especially in Hawaii and California. 'Despite the fact that we have learned a significant amount about the earthquake sources for tsunamis, there are gaps in our understanding of past tsunamis, especially prehistoric tsunamis,' says Rick Wilson, a senior engineering geologist with the California Geological Survey. 'If we can demonstrate when and where tsunamis occurred in the past, that information will give us a better understanding of the return periods in these areas, and that can go into the probabilistic analyses that help us understand our hazard and risk better.' Wilson, who also serves as the science coordinator for the State of California Tsunami Preparedness and Hazard Mitigation Program, noted that more than 440,000 people have died worldwide since 1850 as a result of Read more: dailymail.co.uk ------------------------------ All videos uploaded here are under the express permission of the original owner, or are in public domain falling under Fair Use for commentary, research, news ing purposes under current copyright rules.

Rupa Chaturvedi - Mobile Video & Disaster Mitigation
http://www.ideasproject.com/ Using Mobile Video Tools Can Mitigate Disasters In the recent situation where there was a tsunami warning for Hawaii, we were able to sit in our drawing rooms and view live coverage of people standing in their hotel balconies and capturing live stream of the situation, the water receding, and how the things were looking like through a mobile phone. And they were using Skype to relay that information back into the Internet forum. So a lot of bloggers were capturing that live stream and relaying it back to people like us, and we were watching every second count of what's going on. And I feel if some of these technologies and tools are available to the actual fishermen or people residing in coastal areas, and they're able to comprehend or view, through a video, exactly what happens at the time of a tsunami; what to look for, what to watch out for, for example the water recedes to that extent before coming back, I think they'll be far better prepared. They would know exactly what to expect and they can take some prevention measures. A lot of lives can be saved.

disaster management and planning
Natural disasters: including floods, hurricanes, earthquakes and volcano eruptions that have immediate impacts on human health and secondary impacts causing further death and suffering from (for example) floods, landslides, fires, tsunamis. Environmental emergencies: including technological or industrial accidents, usually involving the production, use or transportation of hazardous material, and occur where these materials are produced, used or transported, and forest fires caused by humans. Complex emergencies: involving a break-down of authority, looting and attacks on strategic installations, including conflict situations and war. Pandemic emergencies: involving a sudden onset of contagious disease that affects health, disrupts services and businesses, brings economic and social costs.

Promoting Land Use and Spatial Planning for Disaster Risk Reduction
This session presented good practices that address the challenges surrounding the incorporation of risk reduction in existing land-use planning and management practices at the local level. Practical recommendations are made on how to ensure that local governments have access to aerial, space-based and in situ information, tools and capacities necessary to develop and implement risk-sensitive land-use planning.
PDNA Emergency Preparedness #1 (9/24/11)
It has come to the attention of the Pearl District Neighborhood Association's Livability Committee that many of the residential buildings and businesses in our "mixed use" neighborhood do not have Emergency Preparedness Plans in place. As a result, we are ill-prepared to help one another in the event of natural or human-caused hazards. In response, the Livability Committee has done a considerable amount of research and development for an Emergency Preparedness Workshop & Resource Fair for the neighborhood at large. This event will occur in September, which is National Emergency Preparedness Month. The mission for this event is two-fold: 1) to increase our community's level of awareness that risk reduction can be achieved through education and Emergency Preparedness Planning; and 2) a Resource Fair which provides the tools needed for residential buildings, small businesses, organizations and individuals to develop EP Plans which are unique to each setting. For example, there will be take-away information on Evacuation Systems for High-Rise Buildings, Small Business Emergency Planning, Family Disaster Plans, EP for Special Needs Individuals, Ready-Set-Go for Children, Caring for Animals, Emergency Supplies Kits, etc. We are making this special plea to our entire neighborhood to get involved. Please save the date, and join us! We hope to see you there. Video/Slideshow By: Guy Bodin/The Image Factor/Photographer

Potentially Killer Asteroid could strike Earth TODAY! .26 Lunar Distance 2017 JA
The World is DOOM-Y AF RN. Potentially Hazardous Asteroid 2017 JA was found yesterday, they've "looked" at it 41 times, it has a condition code of 6 and it will pass by at .26 Lunar Distances which means a quarter of the distance from here to the moon. Is it a chunk left over from Halley's Comet? /shrug The good news is it's small about 7 meters. Also, Asteroids might be fake. /shrug strange days, indeed. God bless everyone, T @newTHOR on twitter https://www.facebook.com/thornewsgo an article on PDCO https://www.nasa.gov/planetarydefense/overview Planetary Defense Coordination Office NASA’s Planetary Defense Coordination Office (PDCO) is managed in the Planetary Science Division of the Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C. The PDCO is responsible for: Ensuring the early detection of potentially hazardous objects (PHOs) – asteroids and comets whose orbits are predicted to bring them within 0.05 Astronomical Units of Earth; and of a size large enough to reach Earth’s surface – that is, greater than approximately 30 to 50 meters; Tracking and characterizing PHOs and issuing warnings about potential impacts; Providing timely and accurate communications about PHOs; and Leading the coordination of U.S. Government planning for response to an actual impact threat. The PDCO relies on data from projects supported by NASA’s Near-Earth Object (NEO) Observations Program. The PDCO also coordinates NEO observation efforts conducted at ground-based observatories sponsored by the National Science Foundation and space situational awareness facilities of the United States Air Force. In addition to finding, tracking, and characterizing PHOs, NASA’s planetary defense goals include developing techniques for deflecting or redirecting PHOs, if possible, that are determined to be on an impact course with Earth. In the event that deflection or redirection is not possible, the PDCO is responsible for providing expert input to the Federal Emergency Management Agency for emergency response operations should a PHO be on an impact course or actually impact the Earth. In the event that experts find a PHO or predict a possible, probable, or certain impact with Earth, the PDCO is responsible for providing timely and accurate information to the Government, the media, and the public. The Minor Planet Center is tasked with notifying observers worldwide about PHOs so they can conduct timely follow-up observations. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Center for NEO Studies (CNEOS) analyzes data collected on PHOs, predicts future orbits, and calculates impact probabilities. CNEOS will use new data to refine its predictions of the PHO’s orbit. If a PHO poses a significant chance of impacting Earth (that is, greater than 1 percent over the next 100 years), the PDCO prepares notification messages for the NASA Administrator to send to the Executive Office of the President, the U.S. Congress, and other Government organizations. In conducting its work, the PDCO collaborates with other U.S. Government agencies, other national and international agencies, and professional and amateur astronomers around the world. For example, the PDCO works closely with the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of State on NEO impact warning, mitigation and response planning. The PDCO is responsible for facilitating communications between the science community and the public should any potentially hazardous NEO be discovered. The PDCO also works closely with the United Nations Office of Outer Space Affairs, its Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, and its Action Team on Near Earth Objects (also known as Action Team 14). The PDCO is a leading member of the International Asteroid Warning Network (IAWN) and the Space Missions Planning Advisory Group (SMPAG), multinational endeavors recommended by the United Nations for an international response to the NEO impact hazard and established and operated by the space-capable nations. The PDCO also communicates with the scientific community through channels such as NASA’s Small Bodies Assessment Group (SBAG). The 2017 PDC Hypothetical Asteroid Impact Scenario Initial Press Release A hypothetical asteroid impact scenario will be presented at the 2017 IAA Planetary Defense Conference (PDC), to be held in Tokyo, Japan, May 15-19, 2017. Although this scenario is realistic in many ways, it is completely fictional and does NOT describe an actual potential asteroid impact. The scenario is as follows: An asteroid is discovered on March 6, 2017, at magnitude 21.1, and confirmed the following day. It is assigned the designation “2017 PDC” by the Minor Planet Center. (To reinforce the fact that this is not a real asteroid, we are using three letters in the designation, something that would never be done for an actual asteroid.) Satire ?
