Tsunami information center
Tsunami Warning - A tsunami warning is issued when a tsunami with the potential to generate widespread inundation is imminent, expected, or occurring. Warnings alert the public that dangerous coastal flooding accompanied by powerful currents is possible and may continue for several hours after initial arrival. Warnings alert emergency management officials to take action for the entire tsunami hazard zone. Appropriate actions to be taken by local officials may include the evacuation of low-lying coastal areas, and the repositioning of ships to deep waters when there is time to safely do so. Warnings may be updated, adjusted geographically, downgraded, or canceled. To provide the earliest possible alert, initial warnings are normally based only on seismic information.
Tsunami Advisory - A tsunami advisory is issued when a tsunami with the potential to generate strong currents or waves dangerous to those in or very near the water is imminent, expected, or occurring. The threat may continue for several hours after initial arrival, but significant inundation is not expected for areas under an advisory. Appropriate actions to be taken by local officials may include closing beaches, evacuating harbors and marinas, and the repositioning of ships to deep waters when there is time to safely do so. Advisories are normally updated to continue the advisory, expand/contract affected areas, upgrade to a warning, or cancel the advisory.
Tsunami Watch - A tsunami watch is issued to alert emergency management officials and the public of an event which may later impact the watch area. The watch area may be upgraded to a warning or advisory - or canceled - based on updated information and analysis. Therefore, emergency management officials and the public should prepare to take action. Watches are normally issued based on seismic information without confirmation that a destructive tsunami is underway.
Tsunami Information Statement - A tsunami information statement is issued to inform emergency management officials and the public that an earthquake has occurred, or that a tsunami warning, watch or advisory has been issued for another section of the ocean. In most cases, information statements are issued to indicate there is no threat of a destructive tsunami and to prevent unnecessary evacuations as the earthquake may have been felt in coastal areas. An information statement may, in appropriate situations, caution about the possibility of destructive local tsunamis. Information statements may be re-issued with additional information, though normally these messages are not updated. However, a watch, advisory or warning may be issued for the area, if necessary, after analysis and/or updated information becomes available. Tsunami Information Center
Earthquake of magnitude 5.5 that was registered with epicenter 9 km northeast of Irapa. The tremor was felt in cities such as: Cumaná, Carúpano, in #Sucre; Maturín, in #Monagas and Anaco, in #Anzoátegui, eastern sectors of Venezuela.
Specific, the oarfish is considered in Japan as Ryugu no tsukai, which means “Messenger of the Palace of the God of the Sea”. This means that if several rowing fish are seen in the Asian country, the occurrence of powerful earthquakes is close.
The appearance of saber fish is associated in Japanese culture with the announcement of the occurrence of violent earthquakes and tsunamis. Although it is a popular belief, the sighting of them in recent years has preceded earthquakes in various parts of the world.
In July 2020 they found one in Alaska, where a few days later an earthquake of 7.8 degrees was recorded. Meanwhile, in June of that same year in Mexico An earthquake of 7.5 degrees was recorded 10 days after the strange animal appeared.
From science they advance a possible explanation for the appearance of the oarfish and the earthquakes: deep-sea fish such as oarfish live near the sea floor and are much more sensitive to active fault movements than those near the sea surface. This would make them emerge when they detect strange movements, which alter their behaviors.
