Production of “Ready for the Tsunami?” starts tomorrow and we are excited to begin this journey in the town of Chipiona.
For 268 years, on November 1st, the people of Chipiona remember the tsunami of 1755.
Commonly known as “The Great Lisbon Earthquake”, this mega earthquake and tsunami (8.6-9.2 Mw), greatly affected Portugal and the southern coast of Spain. Depending on the location, waves reached anywhere between 12 to 30 meters.
Knowing our past is a strong foundation for a better future. This is why Chipiona is among those on the forefront of implementing tsunami safety measures in Europe.
Keep checking in for updates on “Ready for the Tsunami?“
In the meantime… we wish you a safe and spoooooky Halloween!
