Tsunami warnings important to S. Ga.

January 26, 2005

Cairo- Meteorologist Paul Duval runs the National Weather Service bureau in Tallahassee. He says a warning system is needed on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts.

Duval says it's not a matter of if, but when a tsunami will hit one of those areas. "Each of the Tsunami warning networks that has been established, it's been established after a major catastrophe occurred. That clearly demonstrates the need for something like this."

Duval adds that the weather service is working on a program to provide Tsunami warnings for coasts around our region.
