Tsunami Advisory Remains in Effect
Release #3 South Bend, Washington – A tsunami advisory remains in effect for the coastal areas of Washington, Oregon, and California. There is no tsunami watch or warning in effect at this time. A tsunami is a series of waves potentially dangerous for several hours after the initial arrival time. A tsunami is not a single wave event. For your own safety you are warned to stay out of the water, off the beach, and away from harbors and marinas. Pacific County officials strongly recommend that you stay off all local beaches. Do not go near the water until the tsunami advisory has been lifted. The threat is expected to begin around 2:00 p.m. this afternoon along the central Oregon coast. Sea level rises could continue for several hours. You can continue to monitor the situation at http://www.weather.gov/portland or http://wcatwc.arh.noaa.gov.
