Risk Assessment and Contingency Planning

Island coasts are exposed frequently to extreme forces generated by tropical storms. The damage caused by hurricanes (typhoons or cyclones) may be from direct effects of the strong winds or indirect effects such as flooding. Direct and indirect damage to coastal areas occurs also from the tsunamis which may be generated by other events such as earthquakes.
