There are many good reasons to be responsible and recognise the danger

of Tsunami, - especially in New Zealand and the Pacific. We live in a globally recognised hotspot. More than 75% of the volcanoes in the world - both active and dormant, are found in countries within the Ring of Fire, and  about 80% of major earthquakes are related to activity within the Ring.

After Japan, Hawaii, and Indonesia, New Zealand and Chile are rated as the most likely places to be affected by Tsunami.
