Tsunami Warning Exercise On Wednesday

March 24, 2015

Bermuda’s emergency services will be participating in a simulated Atlantic tsunami warning exercise tomorrow [March 25] in conjunction with other countries within the Atlantic and Caribbean region, the Government said today.

A spokesperson said, “The public will be aware that the Bermuda Weather Service [BWS] issued an advisory earlier this week indicating that the 2015 exercise will simulate an undersea earthquake which triggers an undersea landslide a couple of hundred miles off the coast of Cape Canaveral, USA.

“The resulting exercise tsunami wave will affect Bermuda, the eastern coast of US and Canada as well as other jurisdictions in the Atlantic and Caribbean.

“As such, there will be various levels of participation in this simulated exercise by various services throughout the community. The BWS operated by BAS-Serco Limited on behalf of the Bermuda Government’s Department of Airport Operations will fully respond to the exercise to test the communication of information and dissemination of watches and warnings.

An Emergency Measures Organization [EMO] discussion focusing on readiness and preparedness will take place during the time period of the exercise.

    Demand more of your government.

    They know what is coming and the end of this Shemitah year. Sept 24, 2015. This drill will help raise the awareness but what is coming our way will not be helped by drills. Western governments have known about this event for quite sometime. Bermuda will be decimated. Make yourselves right with the lord right now people.

    As stated in the below – 500 days from the time of this conference that took place on May 13, 2014 – September 24, 2015.

    There are so many biblical/talmudic signs prophesied in connection to this final Shemitah period before the seven year tribulation.

    Listen to this speech and read between the lines –

    Laugh and “dislike” all you want – the time is well past for us to worry about those who deny.

    The region between Puerto Rico and the northern tip of Brazil.

    • realnews says:

      There will be three strikes. in the above mentioned region one to the east of the northeastern tip of Brazil and one in the open water east of florida – the one most dangerous to us.

      This is no small matter. I just wish the government had the guts to tell us how bad this really is.

        This has nothing to do with Governments, it has everything to do with Meteorologists. They can give us more information if necessary.

  7. ha says:

  8. Longtail says:

    This is a link that shows recent seismic activity… from the radar you can see the Atlantic seems pretty safe…

    I wonder why the sudden idea to practice this….

    • Longtail says:

      You can see that the southern Caribbean countries are getting worried because they’ve had a few small earthquakes in the past couple of weeks.

      There is a lot of activity on the Pacific side of Central America…. but the Gulf should be fine.

      I Pray, Amen
