Pacific-wide Tsunami Warning and Communication Exercise to take place November 9th-10th. The stated purpose of the test:

“The purpose (aim) of Exercise Pacific Wave 11 is to improve local and regional source tsunami warning and response capability in the Pacific.
The exercise provides an opportunity for Pacific countries to exercise their operational lines of communications, review their tsunami response procedures, and promote emergency preparedness. Regular exercises are important for maintaining staff readiness in case of a real event. This is especially true for tsunamis, which are infrequent, but when they occur, require a rapid response. Every Pacific country is encouraged to participate”.
