6.9 in Japan & 8.3 in Chile.
Is that an example of every action gets an opposite reaction?
You know why don't act naive.

No
"For every action there is an equal, and opposit reaction". 6.9 does not equal 8.3, those Chilians got a bad deal.

The preliminary reports are very troubling; let's hope and pray for the best for all affected.

Yes John 8.8 is one of the top ten earth quakes in recorded history.

A tsunami warning has been issued for basically the entire Pacific; a 40 meter tsunami already hit Juan Fernandez island. That's higher than a ten story building.

I imagine it'd be the other way 'round. It'd really be a 9.15, Fox would understate it, and CNN would overstate it. You have to ac-centuate the negative to increase the need for government salvation.

Hopefully it's not con-carnage.

If y'all foreigners would talk more about your own countries and less about ours, we could have fewer Ameri-centric threads. I think the people in other countries would at more of a loss not to talk about the USA than we would. Maybe we could start a thread for people from other countries to discuss what the USA should have done differently to prevent earthquakes in Chile and Japan.

Sometimes the knee bone is connected to the leg bone. Earthquake = Tsunami. Our sirens went off this morning and we are under a warning.

In 2008 a team of scientists warned that a large earthquake could hit Haiti. I wonder if they also warned about these ones. It seems they have a rough idea when these things are expected to happen.

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Stay safe, Barry! My sister lives in Hawaii, and I've already told her the same thing.

ESN, has that been confirmed? The report I read had words like "allegedly" and "reportedly" in it...

40 meters is a huge tsunami. I mean really big. Tsunamis don't tend to get bigger than say 50 feet at most if they were started by an Earthquake as this one would have been. There are larger waves possible, but not with that source. Lets be sure...

Then lets pray as hard as we can for all those people, who if the wave was 1 quarter the size you reported are still in very serious trouble.

Thank you Scott. I live at 1500' so we are ok but folks at sea level are concerned. I have a gig today and hope they have the good sense to cancel it out of respect for the situation.

According to CNN a "large wave" hit Juan Fernandez Island, and a 7.7 foot wave hit somewhere near Santiago. 7.7 feet is no where near the previous report, but again don't sell it short. that wave can do lots of damage and take many lives. The height of a tsunami is only a very small part of the problem. The real issue is how fast it comes in and how it keeps on coming in. Water is VERY heavy and at speed can do much more damage than most people realize.

I am not looking to insult anyone here, but the original report of the height of the wave just didn't work for me. 8 feet is far more believable and plenty dangerous.

Is California in danger? I am thinking we are not. This is based only on the continental angle. Because South America is located east of most of the U.S., I think the wave is going to mostly miss us. NOTE: this is an opinion and I might be wrong. A tsunami wave is a deep as the ocean is, and can be affected by underwater topography. Hawaii is on Tsunami alert and parts of Mexico should be too.

Lets keep praying.

Sorry I left that part out. They travel until they run out of energy (This takes a long distance!) or until the hit something big enough to stop them (a continent). I dare say that Alaska which is directly in the path may get a smaller wave or none at all. Look how far Hawaii is from the epicenter of the quake and realize that they are very concerned about it.

My earlier post may be off a bit, an advisory (low level warning) has been issued for California.

I do think California, Washington and Oregon are under "Tsunami Advisory" right now. That simply means nothing is currently expected, but they're watching conditions and will upgrade the situation if it becomes necessary.
