A tsunami watch was issued for the coasts of Oregon, Washington and California as well as parts of Alaska.

A wave is on its way from Japan and is expected to hit between 7 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. -- about 7:05 a.m. for the Washington coast, 7:12 a.m. on the southern Oregon coast and 7:24 a.m. along the California coast, forecasters say.

Tsunami warning issued for Hawaii, Pacific
Zone includes Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and South America

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii has widened its tsunami warning to include Hawaii and the rest of the Pacific Ocean, while a watch notice was issued for west coast of the U.S.

Sirens were sounded in Honolulu shortly after the warning was issued Thursday at 9:31 p.m. Haiwaii time.

The warning follows a massive earthquake that has struck off the northeastern coast of Japan.

It says the estimated earliest arrival in Hawaii of the first tsunami wave is 2:59 a.m. local time time Friday (7:59 a.m. ET).

"A tsunami has been generated that could cause damage along the coastlines of all islands in the state of Hawaii," the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center's bulletin said. "Urgent action should be taken to protect lives and property."


damned.gif New Zealand eh? Do they really need this after all they have been through?

Tsunami Warning Issued for Oregon's Coast

It's been upgraded! The tsunami warning issued aftects Oregon's entire coastline. If you live within that warning area, you should move inland to higher ground.

I don't think anybody really 'needs' a tsunami...They say the wave is higher than many islands in the Pacific sad2.gif That can't end in anything but major destruction

Can you imagine what happens when tsunami hits thousands of Micronesian Islands?

Geography of Kiribati:

Kiribati consists of 32 atolls and one island scattered over all four hemispheres in an expanse of ocean equivalent in size to the continental United States. The islands lie roughly halfway between Hawaiʻi and Australia in the Micronesian region of the South Pacific. The three main island groupings are the Gilbert Islands, Phoenix Islands, and Line Islands. On 1 January 1995 Kiribati moved the International Date Line to include its easternmost islands and make it the same day throughout the country.
Kiribati includes Kiritimati (Christmas Atoll; in the Line Islands), the largest coral atoll (in terms of land area, not dimensions) in the world, and Banaba (Ocean Island), one of the three great phosphate rock islands in the Pacific.
Most of the land on these islands is less than two metres above sea level.

I was in Bed, asleep,,,, the radio tuned to C2C,, heh heh

Then,,, a very loud voice ( News Caster-ette this time) tHERE HAS BEEN AN earth quake,,,

A Sue-Nam-me, is on the way!!!!

i lifted my too tired head, thought for a few moments on how far i am from the coast line,,,

laid my head down,,, reached over and hit the off button on the radio,,

Thought again,,, shit,, wake me when my Bed is on fire,,,, NOT,, when you are having a Panic Attack over something 6000 miles away,,, alright?

seems some of the Portlanders,,,, are used to their over emphasizing news casters and their
PANIC attacks being full of Drama.
