The tsunami warning affects the whole coast including Clatsop County. Tom Bennett is an emergency Public Information Officer with Clatsop County: “It's not just a single wave; it’s a series that can last for hours. We’re evacuating about 7000 or more people in affected areas just in Clatsop County. Local communities have their own sirens; reverse 911 systems goes out into the unincorporated areas. There's a call and we can pick out regions of the county and send it to the phone.” Police did a sweep of beaches getting reports that some are going to the beaches to watch the waves. Roads are very busy going out of the area; a lot of congestion. Remember, the series of waves can last for several hours. Already, an 8th wave in the series that hit the Aleutian Islands in Alaska was the worst.
