God bless all those who died in Tsunami. Do we have any code to cover it?

Dear Sefians,
This is high time now to look inta seaquakes. And that too, the most unfortunate is Indian Eastern Sea Coast.
May the Almighty bestow His solace to the victims. 
We structural engineers now have to plunge deeper to acquaint the mass with the facts to go ahead for the safe structures.
ACHINTYA.

Dear All

Re: today's EQ in Chennai etc. 

Its the time to act. This is the time to give our countrymen a helping hand. Some nodal body should organize Structural Engineers to go there after the relief operations are over to assess damage to structures. People generally don't want to move back into their homes--we have to allay their fears--by using our assessment system (ref Prof Arya's system or ATC etc.). Structural engineers should volunteer their time however govt or NGO's should sponsor the trip and organize temporary accomodation in affected areas.

My sincere condolences to all affected by today's earthquake. Hopefully
rescue and relief efforts will be prompt and minimize casulaties. Is anyone
aware of NGO's who are currently responding?

As per Dr. Jain's email we have suffered Tsunami in Yr. 1762, 1881 and 1941.

1)Where did it was experienced? What was damage?
2)Are we going to update IS:1893-2000 for costal regions for Tsunami?
