    A leading expert at the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) is urging the Caribbean to prepare for a tsunami, two years ahead of a planned early warning system for the region. Assistant Director-General and executive secretary of the UNESCO-Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, Wendy Watson-Wright said the Indian Ocean Tsunami Early Warning System saved lives in that region following an 8.6 magnitude earthquake off northern Indonesia. Scientists researching and following tsunamis say its a case of “when, not if” the region would be struck by the giant waves triggered by earthquakes and volcanic activity. There have reportedly been at least 94 tsunamis with run-ups in the Caribbean region, causing 4,652 deaths since 1498. Scientists and disaster management officials say models predict a tsunami wiping out vast areas in several island nations where most people live in around capitals and low-lying coastal areas. The Indian Ocean tsunami of December 26, 2004 was one of the deadliest natural disasters in history, killing 230,000 people in 14 countries, mostly in Indonesia.
