Letter: Alarmed by the lack of alert in tsunami warning

Send your letters to editor@oakbaynews.com

Fortunately there was no tsunami otherwise I would be missing and considered lost.

I live a few blocks from Willows Beach and only found out about the warning when I went for my morning coffee. Other customers had received an all-clear message on their phones but no warning of it happening.

As I do not own a cell there has to be another option of alerting.
