Tsunami

Tsunami logo Tsunamis are seismic waves generated by under-ocean earth movements including earthquakes. The ACRD is a vulnerable area and has been subject to tsunami damage in the past. On Good Friday, March 27, 1964, a four-metre high wave generated by an earthquake in Anchorage, Alaska, caused $5 million damage to homes and business in Port Alberni (1964 dollars).

Warning bulletins are issued to emergency response personnel through Emergency Management BC (EMBC) and the National Tsunami Warning Center (NTWC) in Palmer Alaska.

TsuanmiClosure If a member of the public is interested in receiving these warning bulletins by email or text, registration is possible through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) National Weather Service. Go to www.wcatwc.arh.noaa.gov to register.
