TV in Southern Oregon just issued a Tsunami warning for Souther Oregon
TV warning

Posted on 08/04/2009 2:16:01 PM PDT by milagro

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.

Doesn’t appear to be any major earthquake activity on the world map, at least influencing southern Oregon.

There have been quakes in California ... yesterday though. Can Tsunami's be that delayed?

The website to verify if there is a real Tsunami warning for Oregon is jammed. It might be either way though....

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.

Just seems weird to me that the warning would come on HGTV--unless it showed up on other Charter cable channels. If it's a joke, it's not that funny. Years ago one of our coastal towns (think it was Brookings) was devastated by a tsunami!

Thanks for all the info posted here already, especially the Noaa site--but nothing about a tsunami shows up on that site. Just weird!

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.

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.

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.

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!!!

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.

I called the Grants Pass Police department and they said they have heard nothing and not to worry no water would ever reach us over the mountians. Duh, but why the warning.?
