Emergency officials on the Oregon coast near Seaside and Cannon Beach say they learned from Friday's tsunami warning and widespread evacuation. One weakness they uncovered was the difficulty in notifying people about the big waves headed to the Oregon coast. Tom Bennett with Clatsop County explains: “Our 911 reverse 911 calling system didn't reach everyone we wanted to. Part of that is people who have only cell phones it doesn't automatically get a hold of those people unless they have registered with the system so we are going to use this to encourage people who only have cell phones and don't have a landline to go ahead and register.” Another problem they saw was people going back on the beach way too early to watch the waves. Bennett explains the tsunamis are a series of waves than can take hours and hours. Overall, Bennett says the evacuation went well with thousand's of people heeding the warning and not panicking.
