In light of National Tsunami Preparedness Week this week, officials from the San Luis Obispo County Office of Emergency Services and the National Weather Service are alerting San Luis Obispo County residents of a test of the tsunami warning system Wednesday.
The test will occur at about 10:15 a.m. in coastal areas along the Central Coast and Southern California. It will feature a test of the Emergency Alert System on local radio and television stations. Sirens located in the Diablo Canyon Emergency Planning Zone will not be part of the test.
People in coastal areas who do not receive the test are asked to inform their local National Weather Service office. The public can also provide feedback online at www.weather.gov/test.
