Slow tsunami warnings raise questions
Complaints were heard in some communities about the flow of information from Emergency Management B.C. after a 7.7 magnitude quake struck at 8:04 p.m. PT Saturday. It was 8:55 p.m. by the time Emergency Management B.C. was able to issue its first tsumami warning on Twitter, long after U.S. warnings had been issued at 8:13 p.m. PT. Here is a response from B.C.'s minster responsible for public safety, Justice Minster Shirley Bond.
