the news is saying that because most of California is inline with the coast of Chile, we don't have much to worry about, where the coastline sticks out, at an angle \ sort of like oregon, they should have more to worry about.
the other thing about southern california is the sand line under the water goes out for miles & miles before there is a major drop off ( trench ), apparently its the trenches off shore that have a lot to do with the tsunami wave, the wave moves towards the shore, slams against the trench wall, causing the water to sort of boil upwards & the wave still coming in pushes the boiled up water with it, like the wind pushing the last wave in a set of waves, the last wave in the set is the one that the surfers want, because its higher & breaks just right

I have five kids...two are step kids whose bio dad is in the Army stationed in Hawaii. He was camping on the beach when the tsunami sirens went off this morning. We wish them the best.....too bad he's a dog-f*cker for not calling them once in the last month. Oops, did I say that out loud?

Just glad to know it didn't turn out to be as disastrous as ones past, and it's also good to know that the warning system is in place and it works as people seemed to be heeding the advice of local authorities.

I read that ripples were created in a lake as far as New Orleans from the earth quake.

Now the death toll is past 700.
