NOAA's National Weather Service in Eureka informed KMUD News that the annual Tsunami Warning Communications Test, for 2013 will take place on Wednesday, March 27th between 11:00 am and 12:00 noon. To insure that the Tsunami Warning System works properly in case of a real tsunami emergency, Del Norte, Humboldt, and Mendocino Counties will all participate in this test by interrupting TV and Radio Stations, and activating NOAA Weather Radios and Outdoor Sirens. However, not all Cable and Satellite TV Stations may be able to participate.
Remember when you hear or see the warning test on March 27 between 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 Noon:
• You do NOT need to take any action
• Do NOT call 911 or local authorities
• Do NOT evacuate your home or business.
THIS IS ONLY A TEST!!
