Although Bandon has never experienced a tsunami, the city has prepared emergency procedures and an evacuation map, just in case.
A tsunami is a series of sea waves, typically caused by an undersea earthquake, that increase in height as they enter the shallow water near land.
A “local tsunami” is caused by an undersea earthquake near the coast and can come onshore within 15-20 minutes after the quake, meaning people must evacuate quickly if they feel an earthquake. A distant tsunami is caused by an earthquake far away that coastal residents and visitors will not feel the quake. In this case, there is time for official warning and evacuation.
Evacuation for a distant tsunami will be indicated by a 3-minute siren blast and an announcement.

Bandon regularly test its emergency tsunami warning system. In this case, you will hear an announcement over a PA system that a test is in progress, then you will hear the siren. There is no to feel alarmed, but do feel glad that the city of Bandon is ready in case of a tsunami emergency!
