    Tsunami Warning For Southern California

    This is an urgent bulletin for my three readers:

    …A TSUNAMI WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR THE IMMEDIATE COAST AND
    HARBORS NORTH OF POINT CONCEPTION…

    …A TSUNAMI ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR THE IMMEDIATE COAST AND
    HARBORS SOUTH OF POINT CONCEPTION…

    BASED ON THE LATEST TELECONFERENCE…THERE HAS BEEN A SLIGHT
    INCREASE IN MANY OF THE FORECAST TSUNAMI AMPLITUDES ALONG THE
    SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA COAST. COASTAL AREAS NORTH OF POINT CONCEPTION
    WILL LIKELY EXPERIENCE A TSUNAMI INUNDATION BETWEEN 3.5 TO 7 FEET.
    HIGHEST WAVE INUNDATION TO AROUND 7 FEET CAN BE EXPECTED AROUND PORT
    SAN LUIS. FOR AREAS SOUTH OF POINT CONCEPTION…EXPECTED TSUNAMI
    WAVE HEIGHTS 2 FEET TO AROUND 3 FEET CAN BE EXPECTED FROM SANTA
    BARBARA TO LONG BEACH.

    RECOMMENDED ACTIONS…
    PERSONS IN LOW-LYING COASTAL AREAS SHOULD MOVE INLAND TO HIGHER
    GROUND AND BE ALERT TO INSTRUCTIONS FROM THEIR LOCAL EMERGENCY
    OFFICIALS. TSUNAMIS OFTEN ARRIVE AS A SERIES OF WAVES WHICH COULD BE
    DANGEROUS FOR AS MUCH AS 10 HOURS AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE ARRIVAL.

    A TSUNAMI ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FOR COASTAL AREAS SOUTH OF POINT
    CONCEPTION. A TSUNAMI ADVISORY MEANS THAT A TSUNAMI CAPABLE OF
    PRODUCING STRONG CURRENTS OR WAVES DANGEROUS TO PERSONS IN OR NEAR
    THE WATER AS WELL AS BOATS MOORED IN HARBORS IS IMMINENT OR
    EXPECTED.

    THE INITIAL WAVE ARRIVAL WILL BEGIN WITHIN 15 MINUTES OF THE

    ZONE. APPROPRIATE ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN BY LOCAL OFFICIALS MAY INCLUDE

    TO DEEP WATERS WHEN THERE IS TIME TO SAFELY DO SO.
