A small Tsunami is currently underway in Port Alberni.

Multiple eyewitnesses are reporting seeing unusual water movement near Catalyst paper mill, the flats there and the current in the Somass River reversing one way then the other.

A Tsunami Advisory remains.

It looks like there is not going to be a flooding Tsunami. However, the current activity could get worse and it will last for next few hours.

A Tsunami is not one wave, it is a series of waves. This is what we are seeing now.

Stay away from the harbour or river. Currents and streams will be unpredictable.
