The following is an email update from San Francisco’s District 4 Supervisor, Carmen Chu regarding the Tsunami warnings issued today.
While our thoughts and prayers go out to those who have suffered the most in the earthquake and tsunami disaster in Japan, I wanted to pass along information about the local situation from the San Francisco Department of Emergency Management:
The City and County of San Francisco continues to monitor the situation related to the Tsunami warning issued this morning. As a precaution, the upper and lower Great Highway, as well as Ocean Beach, Baker Beach, China Beach, and Fort Funston have been closed.
The San Francisco Department of Emergency Management (DEM) has activated the City’s Emergency Operations Center. DEM is in regular contact with the California Emergency Management Agency.
The City has not ordered an evacuation. Residents are advised to monitor local media for information updates.
Please don’t hesitate to call my office at 415-554-7460 should you have any further questions or concerns.
Supervisor, District 4
City & County of San Francisco
