Amongst talk of what would happen if a big earthquake or tsunami were to hit our area, a group of concerned townsfolk have outlined plans should either of these natural events befall us.
The group is forming an emergency committee for Tamarindo and Langosta to plan procedures in the event of a natural disaster. In addition, the group is working with the Costa Rican government on a census of the area so people can be found easily. The group also is looking for people willing to help distribute food, water, medicines, etc., if the need arises.
