Pacific County AHAB Siren System Tested, Failed at 3 Sites

In actual events, the AHAB sirens will sound the constant tone (no warble) for three continuous minutes, and may be followed by a verbal message. The Pacific County Tsunami Plan calls for the AHAB sirens to be activated any time Pacific County is placed within the area of a tsunami warning. A tsunami warning means that an earthquake in the Pacific Rim may have generated a tsunami wave that has the potential to reach the Pacific County coastline within a three hour window of time.
