At 10:12 PM local time last night, a 7.8-magnitude earthquake occurred off the southern coast of Alaska. A tsunami warning was issued for much of the coastline, including Kodiak. This prompted the activation of the siren system. Many of Kodiak's Alertronics seem to be active, but I don't believe it will be much longer before the system is replaced. I mainly posted this because I have always been a fan of this city's system and the Alertronic series itself. Videos belong to their respective owners.

Ambiance in Kodiak during the tsunami warning. Dual-toned Alertronics can be heard:

One Alertronic running on a newer single-toned ASC controller during the warning:
