Officials to test tsunami warning system

As part of Tsunami Preparedness Week, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and its emergency management partners plan to conduct a test of the tsunami warning communications system on March 27 at 10:15 a.m.
March 27 marks 50 years since “The Great Alaska Earthquake of 1964” in Prince William Sound. The emergency test will be broadcast on NOAA Weather Radio, local television and radio stations, and residents in some communities may hear warning sirens. To avoid any confusion with an actual alert, the test will be canceled if there is excessive seismic activity 24 hours prior to the test.
Officials are asking coastal Alaskans to provide feedback online at ready.alaska.gov.
