Abstract : Six tsunamis occurred during the first half of 1996. Three of those, two in Indonesia and one in Peru, were very destructive and caused injuries and loss of life. They increased to eleven the number of locally destructive tsunamis that have occurred since the Nicaragua tsunami in September 1992. The other three tsunamis, two from the Aleutian Islands and one from Mexico, had non-damaging, instrumentally recorded waves. The following are brief response about these tsunamis, representing information received at ITIC from a variety of sources.
