As part of Tsunami Preparedness Week, officials plan to conduct a statewide tsunami warning test this morning.

The test ensures coastal communities, including Venice and Marina del Rey, can be successfully alerted of the potentially deadly waves.

The test is scheduled for 10:15am this morning and will be broadcast on radio, television stations, and weather radio networks.

Ken Kondo of the Los Angeles County Office
of Emergency Management said the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the State of California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services are responsible for testing the warning system.
