Manzanita: OUT with Tsunami Sirens; IN with aerial bullhorns, Facebook and Email

The Tillamook County town of Manzanita has changed how most people would expect to be alerted that a tsunami may be on the way. Manzanita has dropped tsunami warning sirens in favor of loudspeakers atop those tsunami poles, loudspeakers from low flying airplanes and social media like Facebook and Email to alert people that a tsunami is probably heading their way.

Manzanita officials figure that tsunami sirens are tested so often that most people would just ignore them if the tsunami was coming from far away. They say if the tsunami is generated by Oregon’s notorious Cascadia Subduction Zone just offshore, five minutes of continuous shaking would convince everyone to head for higher ground immediately regardless of hearing sirens. So…Manzanita has changed its game plan. The story is from Lori Tobias of the Oregonian. Click here.
