Abby Wutzler, from Wellington New
Zealand, was vacationing in Samoa
on September 29, 2009 when she
noticed the ocean was withdrawing.
She had also been taught about the
natural warning signs of a tsunami
in school and ran up and down the
beach yelling that a tsunami was
coming.  Many tourists credit Abby’s warning with
saving their lives.


Moisés Molina was on duty in the Chilean
coastal resort town of Iloca when the ground
started shaking in the early morning hours of
February 27, 2011. He was not from the
coast but he had seen the tsunami
evacuation signs posted in the town and
when he saw the ocean change character,
he realized it was time to evacuate. He
coordinated his police staff and successfully
notified everyone, including unsuspecting
campers, to evacuate. Thanks to his efforts,
no one in Iloca died.
