Tsunami Warning System
Repair work has been completed on a series of tsunami warning sirens on the San Mateo County Coast, according to the sheriff’s office.
Repair work has begun on eight sirens posted along the San Mateo County coast that are designed to alert residents in the event of a tsunami, a sheriff’s spokeswoman said Tuesday.
A routine test of tsunami warning sirens along the San Mateo County coast conducted last week showed only three of eight sirens working properly, according to officials.
If you live along the San Mateo County coast you may have heard a loud siren Wednesday, but rest assured it was only a test. However, it was unlike any other test conducted along the county’s coast so far.
