EVALUATION
THERE IS A VERY SMALL POSSIBILITY OF A DESTRUCTIVE LOCAL TSUNAMI

ESTIMATION AT THE FORECAST POINTS - NO TSUNAMIS WITH
AMPLITUDE OF 0.5 METER OR OVER ARE EXPECTED AT ANY OF THEM.

HOWEVER AT SOME COASTS, PARTICULARLY THOSE NEAR THE EPICENTER, HIGHER
TSUNAMIS MAY ARRIVE THAN OUR ESTIMATION
AUTHORITIES SHOULD BE AWARE OF THIS POSSIBILITY.

THIS WILL BE THE FINAL BULLETIN UNLESS THERE ARE CHANGES ABOUT
THE POTENTIAL OF TSUNAMI GENERATION BY RE-EVALUATION OF THE
EARTHQUAKE OR THERE ARE REPORTS ON TSUNAMI OBSERVATIONS.
