Any food that has been in contact with contaminated flood waters should be thrown out. Don't eat any food that hasn't been sealed in a plastic, waterproof container or commercially canned. Don't consume food from containers with screw caps, twist caps or flip tops if they've been in contact with contaminated water.
If a tsunami reaches shore, the water damage to structures can be devastating. Stay out of buildings surrounded by water since floors can sink and the structure could collapse. If a building is safe enough to enter, open all windows and doors to dry out the building. Carefully inspect a building for various fire hazards, such as broken or leaking gas lines, submerged heating equipment and flooded electrical outlets.
