Tsunami Warning Test Wednesday

THIS IS ONLY A TEST! On March 28th, 2012 the Tsunami Warning Communication test will be activated between 11 AM and noon. This test is being implemented to ensure the Tsunami Warning System works properly in the event of a real tsunami. During this test you may experience an interruption in television/radio programs, hear tsunami sirens and NOAA Weather Radios activated, or receive the test warning message from other sources. During this test, YOU DO NOT NEED TO: take action, call 911, or evacuate. Instead, think about what you would do in the event of a real tsunami. Mark your calendar and remember, THIS IS ONLY A TEST!

  1. The test worked well for all 5 radio stations that I oversee. An airplane flew overhead just after the test went off. It was equipped with special speakers that can be heard over a mile away and clearly at that. The plane is for those that might be on a beach or lowland that didn't hear the sirens or their radio and would otherwise be obvlious to the situation.

  2. Here at 10th. and "L", which is supposedly out of the danger zone, but only 9 blocks from the Bay, didn't hear a thing.

  3. The sirens are not all running as loud as they could be from what I know. PG&E said they had made adjustments to theirs so it wouldn't be too loud for people not in the flood zone and people in Trinidad didn't want to see the siren so it is on a roof instead of up on a pole. As far as I know, the only siren near McKinleyville is across the street from the camp ground at Clam Beach. The bluff would seem to block it from anyone in town.
