TSUNAMI WARNING COMMUNICATIONS TEST
Del Norte, Humboldt, and Mendocino Counties

WHEN: Wednesday, March 28, 2018, between 11:00 a.m. & 12:00 Noon
WHERE: Del Norte, Humboldt, and Mendocino counties.
HOW: Interruptions of TV* and Radio Stations, and activation of NOAA Weather Radios and Outdoor Sirens.
*Not all Cable and Satellite TV Stations may be able to participate
WHY: To test the Tsunami Warning System to ensure it works properly during a real tsunami emergency.

HOW THIS TEST WILL AFFECT YOU:
If you are watching television between 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 Noon on Wednesday morning, expect to see a crawler at the bottom of the screen indicating that a tsunami warning has been issued, and hear a voice indicating that it is only a test. If you don’t hear the TV audio, please remember that this is only a test. If you are listening to the radio, you will hear alerting tones followed by a voice announcing that the test is occurring. If you have a NOAA weather radio with the Public Alert feature, the radio will automatically turn on and you will hear the same message as broadcast on radios. In some areas, you may also hear the sounding of a tsunami siren, an airplane testing its public address system, or receive other communication tests in some local jurisdictions. The Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) system that comes across smart phones will NOT be activated for this test.
Please help us by providing any feedback regarding this test by emailing: ryan.aylward@noaa.gov
When you hear or see the warning test on March 28 between 11:00 a.m. & 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!!
