Address by Assistant Director General and Executive Secretary, UNESCO Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, on the occasion of the official TsunamiReady® designation of the British territory of Anguilla. Anguilla is the 1st non-US community in the Carribean to earn TsunamiReady recognition. Anguilla established a 24-hour emergency operations center, developed multiple ways to receive tsunami warnings and alert the public, developed a formal tsunami hazard plan, conducted emergency exercises and promoted public readiness through community education.

In addition to Anguilla, nearly 100 communities have taken the necessary steps to become TsunamiReady in the United States, Puerto Rico, Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands. The National Weather Service is working in partnership with the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission to bring the TsunamiReady program to more countries in effort to bolster international tsunami preparedness.
