Skip to comments.TV in Southern Oregon just issued a Tsunami warning for Souther Oregon

Anyone else in Southern Oregon hear the Tsuanmi warning--was just watching HGTV and it appeared across the screen. Just curious if this is a test--or a real warning.
as per stevie wonder.
“ain’t no mountain high enough”
Doesn’t appear to be any major earthquake activity on the world map, at least influencing southern Oregon.
Makes no sense—the counties (Jackson and Josephine) given the warning are inland and not on the coast. I know there was an earthquake in the Pacific yesterday—but haven’t seen any news of one today.
Another manufactured “crisis” by 0bama and Co.?
and the seas will calm.
This is all President Bush’s fault!
Thanks for all the info posted here already, especially the Noaa site--but nothing about a tsunami shows up on that site. Just weird!
I’m on a mountain ridge in one of those counties, I’ll go outside and look, but the ocean is about 100 miles awy.
Let me know if you see a wave....
A tsunami moved my cheese.

Seems to have started to act up again. But Oregon? weird.
on a clear day do UCLA?
There’s nothing on my scope. No reports on the world quake sheet. Must have been a test.

Or maybe this?
a very obscure reference, but I did see the movie which was terrible, but somehow enjoyable to watch anyway.
Whenever there is an earthquake in California or Baja, the pilings in the Columbia River vibrate and the tunnels running through the Oregon coast’s highway system experience exfoliatation of their ceilings (cave-ins). This is not a joke.
There was a 5 point quake today in Alaska.
It seems like it would be hard for a quake in the Gulf of California to cause a tsunami which would hit Oregon. Maybe the quake will cause waves that will bounce off the mainland coast south of Mazatlan, ricochet off Tahiti, and wind up heading straight for Southern Oregon.
Ted Kennedy did a cannonball in Hawaii.

BTW, does your screen name reference the Wolf Creek here in Southern Oregon?

Thanks—just went to the link. Wolfcreek posted. But still no tsunami warning on the Noaa link, and no explanation of why Jackson and Josephine counties were included in the warning. They are quite far inland.
Several others on Twitter heard your same notice:
Tsunami? No. Mistakenly sent message just a test, forecasters say
A mistake during a training exercise caused a message to go out to television stations this afternoon that a tsunami warning was being issued.
Ryan Sandler, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service office in Medford, said there was an in-house training exercise for issuing emergency weather warnings. Someone neglected to push the buttons that prevent the emergency message from going out to television stations.
It’s probably thunder storm warnings. We’ve had severe thunder storms moving through here on a daily basis.
If it’s a tsunami in Jackson County that was one big earthquake!!!
We’ll have ocean front property
I watched Superman and have planned accordingly. It only took 30 years to happen.
my friend saw the warning and texted me that new mexico had an eathquake so they were issuing a warning to us that there might be a tsunami. also there were some other earthquakes in california and in the pacific. also, i find it odd that they would issue a warning for jackson and josephine counties. i live in rogue river, OR about 30 miles east of grants pass, OR and we are in the rogue valley, so i doubt that a tsunami could even make it this far inland, and even if it could i dont think it could make it over the mountains.

Oh, that’s funny...thanks.
It was a test- see this ^
That is just plain weird. How is Mt St Helens anyway?
