Siren

DEREK CLARKSTON/Kodiak Daily Mirror

A worker installs a new tsunami warning siren at the corner of Baranof Street and Armstrong Avenue on Sept. 14. Kodiak Island has 21 sirens — 10 located within city limits and 11 outside city limits — all of which will be replaced in the coming weeks. The new sirens will be placed on 50-foot-tall poles, higher up than the island’s current sirens to improve the range at which they can be heard. In addition, because the sirens can transmit in all directions, the sound will be distributed equally, covering a greater area.
