EVALUATION
 THERE IS A VERY SMALL POSSIBILITY OF A DESTRUCTIVE LOCAL TSUNAMI

 ESTIMATION AT THE FORECAST POINTS - NO TSUNAMIS WITH AMPLITUDE
 OF 0.5 METER OR OVER ARE EXPECTED AT ANY OF THEM
                                                                     
           
HOWEVER AT SOME COASTS, PARTICULARLY THOSE NEAR THE EPICENTER, HIGHER
TSUNAMIS MAY ARRIVE THAN OUR ESTIMATION
AUTHORITIES SHOULD BE AWARE OF THIS POSSIBILITY

THIS WILL BE THE FINAL BULLETIN UNLESS THERE ARE CHANGES ABOUT THE
POTENTIAL OF TSUNAMI GENERATION BY RE-EVALUATION OF THE EARTHQUAKE
OR THERE ARE REPORTS ON TSUNAMI OBSERVATIONS
