Tsunami Warning System Update

Update from Councilman Rosendahl on the tsunami warning system feasibility report that was requested in April of 2011:

Councilman Bill Rosendahl talks to Jim Featherstone, the head of the Emergency Management Department with the City of Los Angeles. Rosendahl and Featherstone talk about obtaining a tsunami warning siren system for the coastal communities.

Featherstone says this is a regional issue and the City needs to work with County leaders to get a system for the coastal communities in Los Angeles. Featherstone says each siren would cost about $50,000 – and cost a total of $5-7 million dollars.
