Did you see unusual water behaviour, damage, or erosion around the Tasmanian coast following the Tonga tsunami on 15 January 2022?

The State Emergency Service has engaged Mineral Resources Tasmania and the University of Tasmania to prepare a report on the effects of the tsunami on the Tasmanian coast.

SES are seeking photos, videos, and stories of unusual waves, currents, tides, and impacts on the land, observed on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 January 2022.

Information provided will help improve Tasmania’s preparedness for future tsunamis, and be stored by Geoscience Australia for the benefit of future tsunami research.

Photos and videos with a record of the time, date and location they were taken, and stories with can be emailed to the SES at ses@ses.tas.gov.au
