Tsunami Warning – REMAIN CALM

This post is also available in: Spanish

Casa de Campo residents should NOT panic.  The earthquake experienced in Haiti should not have any repercussions here in Casa de Campo / La Romana, as far as we can tell from the National Weather Service (USA). A link to the Tsunami Warning Center can be found HERE.

Taken from their site [link] we see the following:

A DESTRUCTIVE WIDESPREAD TSUNAMI THREAT DOES NOT EXIST BASED ON
 HISTORICAL EARTHQUAKE AND TSUNAMI DATA.                             

 HOWEVER - THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF A LOCAL TSUNAMI THAT
 COULD AFFECT COASTS LOCATED USUALLY NO MORE THAN A HUNDRED
 KILOMETERS FROM THE EARTHQUAKE EPICENTER. AUTHORITIES FOR THE
 REGION NEAR THE EPICENTER SHOULD BE AWARE OF THIS POSSIBILITY.
 AREAS FURTHER FROM THE EPICENTER COULD EXPERIENCE SMALL SEA
 LEVEL CHANGES AND STRONG OR UNUSUAL COASTAL CURRENTS.
