Tsunami hits South Pacific Islands

ABC Australia (link) has several articles on the Tsunami that hits Samoa and countries in the South Pacific.   I feel that discussing natural disasters, and the devestation that they can bring to an area, is important for children.  In this case learn what a tsunami is and how they happen.  I would tend to discuss the devestation aspect in moderation but use it for a tool to make sure that your family is prepared in case a natural disaster were to happen in your area.  Today there are two disasters to learn about as a 7.6 magnitude earthquake has hit Sumatra in Indonesia as reported by the CBC (link)
