After last year, the government has been trying to get people to understand the differences between orders and advisories and the other terminology being used. They can only do so much, but I hope it has worked.

During the recent tsunami warning, the TV had a big display saying "TSUNAMI! NIGERO! (RUN AWAY)" No-one seeing that could claim they didn't understand how serious the potential danger was.
