RIMES-20190803-2120-011 (Type II) - Update No. 01

TSUNAMI BULLETIN NUMBER 11

Issued at 2120 UTC Sunday 04 August 2019

... POTENTIAL TSUNAMI THREAT ...

Epicenter Location: Test Earthquake 3
EARTHQUAKE INFORMATION
Magnitude (Preferred) : 8.00 Mw(mB)
Depth: 10 km
Date: 31 Jul 2019
Origin Time: 0537 UTC
Latitude: 10.8 °S
Longitude: 114.88 °E
Location: Test Earthquake 3
EVALUATION
Earthquakes of this size are capable of generating tsunamis. However, so far, there is no confirmation about the triggering of a tsunami.

An investigation is under way to determine if a tsunami has been triggered. RIMES will monitor sea level gauges and report if any tsunami wave activity has occurred.

Based on pre-run model scenarios, the zones listed below are POTENTIALLY UNDER THREAT.

Further information on this event will be available at:
http://www.rimes.int/eqt-tsunami-bulletin/
TSUNAMI THREAT
The list below shows the forecast arrival time of the first wave estimated to exceed 0.5m amplitude at the beach in each zone, and the amplitude of the maximum wave predicted for the zone. Zones where the estimated wave amplitudes are less than 0.5m at the beach are not shown.

The list is grouped by country (alphabetic order) and ordered according to the earliest estimated times of arrival at the beach.

Please be aware that actual wave arrival times may differ from those below, and the initial wave may not be the largest. A tsunami is a series of waves, and the time between successive waves can be five minutes to one hour.

The threat is deemed to have passed two hours after the forecast time for last exceedance of the 0.5m threat threshold for a zone. As local conditions can cause a wide variation on tsunami wave action, CANCELLATION of national warnings and ALL CLEAR determination must be made by national/ state/ local authorities.

ADVICE
This bulletin is being issued as advice. Only national/ state/ local authorities and disaster management officers have the authority to make decisions regarding the official threat and warning status in their coastal areas and any action to be taken in response.
UPDATES
Additional bulletins will be issued by RIMES for this event as more information becomes available.
