There is a strong risk of a tsunami in the next 30 years. This risk is estimated to be “almost 100%”. This was revealed in a study inviting the United Nations Organization for Education, Science and Culture to prepare coastal cities.
The most dangerous places are Marseille (France), Alexandria (Egypt) and Istanbul (Turkey). These cities are likely to be hit by waves more than a meter high in the next 30 years. According to UNESCO, many coastal communities in the Mediterranean are falling into dangerous areas due to rising sea levels. In addition to Marseille, Alexandria and Istanbul, the list also includes UNESCO CAN (France) and Chippewa (Spain).
UNESCO will present its report to better understand the risks to coastal communities in view of the United Nations Conference on Oceans scheduled for June 27 to July 1 in Lisbon. “The 2004 and 2011 tsunamis were a wake-up call,” said Bernardo Aliga, a UNESCO tsunami expert. Guardian – aWe have come a long way since 2004 and now we are safe. But there are still gaps in handling this kind of event. To this end, tsunami warnings should be made available to citizens and tourists alike.
