Sudden Drop In Sea Level
There’s little more terrifying than a tsunami, and receding waters are the first sign of incoming trouble. The risks are greatest around the Pacific Ocean’s so-called Ring of Fire, an unsettled area where tectonic shifts ensure that volcanic eruptions and earthquakes are commonplace.
Such underwater disruption can prove fatal to the unaware on surrounding shores. Take our advice on this: be prepared.
Earthquakes beneath the ocean surface disrupt the water above and can cause devastating tsunamis that wreak havoc on land. The waves that are generated can move at up to 500mph so you’ll need to be quick. Should the ocean level drop suddenly, the best plan is to get to high ground as fast as possible. Planning a trip to the Ring of Fire? Understand the signs — it might just save your life.
