2 - Tsunami - info from Island County:

The AHAB (tsunami) siren at Lagoon Point is fully operational.

Eric Brooks, Island County Director of Emergency Management suggest all residents visit their website to learn about its' operation.

The best way to receive alerts, warnings, and information about tsunamis or other hazards is through the Island County Emergency Alert System. With this system you can receive information via phone, text, and/or email. We will upgrading the sign-up options in the near the future but any information in the system will carry over. You can sign up by going to the following site and filling in the pertinent information.

I also recommend that every home and business have a NOAA Weather/All Hazards Radio (NWR). In addition to providing 24 hour weather information it also work with the Federal Communications Commission’s FCC) Emergency Alert System for All Hazards information. The NWR will broadcast warnings and other important information for all types of hazards such as natural hazards (earthquakes, tsunamis, major storms & winds), environmental (chemical releases), public safety (active shooter, major outages) through the Emergency Alert System (EAS). This is also where I would provide information concerning things such as evacuation, sheltering in place, emergency shelters… I recommend getting a radio with a SAME receiver. This way you can input the SAME code into your radio to receive alerts for our area. A programmed NWR SAME receiver will turn on for messages for the area, produce a warning tone to get your attention followed by the broadcast. Island County NOAA Weather Radio information is as follows:

SAME # NWR Transmitter Call Sign Frequency
053029 Puget Sound Marine WWG24 162.425

There are many brands and models out there with many features. While I don’t endorse any particular one, some of the brands and models that I have used include:

  • Oregon Scientific – WR601N & WR602 (portable and chargeable)
  • Midland – WR-300
  • Eaton – FRX5 & FRX3 (includes hand crank and USB charging ports. I sent one with my daughter to college)
