            Last November, a major earthquake struck Anchorage and prompted tsunami warnings in many coastal areas.

Even as Kodiak residents evacuated to high ground, many wondered what happened to the tsunami warning sirens? Why couldn’t they hear them?

It ends up a number of the vital emergency sirens don’t work.

The problem with the sirens is one of several agenda items on this evening’s joint City Council – Borough Assembly work session which begins at 7:30 in the school district conference room.

Information on the state of the sirens is available on the both the City’s and the Borough’s websites.

Also on the agenda is a discussion of Borough Consolidation and development strategies for the Southwest Alaska Municipal Council otherwise known as SWAMC.

SWAMC is a group of municipal, business and other interests which is involved in developing and promoting southwest Alaska. Both the city and borough are members.
