    In 2009, the province of Leyte in central Philippines was devastated by a huge tidal wave. Almost everything near the shore were washed out, killing thousands of people and leaving the towns in ruins. The government’s weather bureau did its part in warning the populace of a possible... wait, the warning was for a storm surge that the people in the province did not understand hence they did not heed the warning. Anyway, as a lesson, when there is a typhoon and you are near the shore, be sure to go to a higher place and far away from the sea. As much as possible, a 1 kilometer distance is the safest.

      One kilometer is not very far! I would say there is no limit to how far you should go, & you need to get to high ground!

    People are stupid that way. I remember stories of people actually moving closer to the sea since the tides receded, just so they could collect the seashells that were now surfaced, and to take pictures of the abnormal wave pattern. Nope, they ended up getting washed away by ten story sized waves and were never heard from again. It's a matter of research though. Going to the beach? The least you could do is to check the danger signs of a tsunami. Learning CPR or at least learning how to swim. It's not that hard.
