The Tsunami Exercise Caribe Wave 17 will have three scenarios: Santiago de Cuba, Costa-Rica and Northeastern Antilles. All scenarios will start, with one dummy message, at 1400 UTC (time of the earthquake) and the 1st message for each of the three scenarios will be 5 minutes later (1405 UTC).

It is important to remark that each Member State will selects one scenario and that PTWC only will send simulated products for the selected scenario to the primary TWFP and NTWC of that Member State.
