November 5, 2016: According to the Sabah Meteorological Department, Kudat district is likely to be hit by a tsunami if an underwater earthquake takes place in the Philippines (Manila Trench) or the massive collapse of a seabed cliff off Brunei.

Based on the scientific studies carried out by researchers across the globe, the state has the potential of being struck by seismic sea waves, New Straits Times has written quoting Azemi Daud, the director of the Sabah Meteorological Department as saying.

The tsunami intensity will depend on the depth of the undersea quake. However, there is no way we can forecast when exactly that will take place.
Meanwhile, the Malaysian Meteorological Department (MetMalaysia) and the Agency National Disaster Management (DMA) are holding a tsunami drill in Putatan, Sabah on Saturday, November 5, 2016. The annual drill is one of the government’s step for the improvement of emergency preparedness during the period of the tsunami disaster.
