This simulation was used to test the warning system for tsunamis and other coastal hazards in the Caribbean Sea and regions surrounding the Caribbean.

Through its national system of risk management and disaster, Haiti works to mitigate the tsunami risk awareness, particularly through school, the development of inundation maps for coastal cities and the organization of evacuation exercises.
