Tsunami Warning SystemThe tsunami warning system in Port Alberni consists of four towers positioned at strategic locations at the edge of the tsunami inundation zone. Towers are located at Golden St. and Nelson Rd, Margaret St and Arrowsmith Rd, 4th Ave and Redford St., Kingsway Ave and 2nd Ave, Compton and Beaver Creek Rd, and on Pacific Rim Highway located near the Tseshaht First Nation Administrative Building.
