THIS IS AN IMPORTANT BULLETIN FROM THE PROVINCIAL EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM. A LARGE EARTHQUAKE HAS OCCURRED IN THE PACIFIC BASIN NEAR JAPAN. THE WEST COAST ALASKA TSUNAMI WARNING CENTRE HAS RAISED THE ALERT STATUS TO ADVISORY FOR THE FOLLOWING ZONES OF COASTAL BRITISH COLUMBIA:

ZONE A – THE NORTH COAST AND THE HAIDA GWAII ISLANDS

ZONE B – THE CENTRAL COAST INCLUDING BELLA BELLA, BELLA COOLA AND SHEARWATER

ZONE C – THE OUTER WEST COAST OF VANCOUVER ISLAND FROM CAPE SCOTT TO PORT RENFREW

AT THIS TIME IT IS BELIEVED THAT A LOW LEVEL TSUNAMI HAS BEEN GENERATED THAT COULD IMPACT MARINAS AND OTHER COASTAL INFRASTRUCTURE OR CREATE STRONG CURRENTS IN HARBOURS AND ISOLATED COASTAL AREAS. LOCAL GOVERNMENTS IN THESE ZONES ARE ADVISED TO ACTIVATE THEIR EMERGENCY PLANS AND TO IMMEDIATELY EVACUATE MARINAS, BEACHES AND OTHER AREAS THAT ARE BELOW THE NORMAL HIGH TIDE MARK. THE PROVINCIAL EMERGENCY COORDINATION CENTRE WILL ISSUE UPDATED INFORMATION, AS SOON AS IT IS AVAILABLE.
