The tiny Caribbean island nation St Kitts and Nevis has been working with the UN Development Programme (UNDP) to make sure it is in a "state of readiness" if a tsunami were to hit the low-lying archipelago.

Although a tsunami has never struck St Kitts and Nevis, like other nation sin the Caribbean it is preparing for the possibility.

Claricia Langley-Stevens, the country's Deputy National Disaster Coordinator recently attended a UN meeting on disaster preparedness in Asuncion, Paraguay.

Daniel Dickinson met her there and asked her about the threat of tsunamis.
