Bad news are still coming

Report from East African coast devastated by tsunami:



Most buildings on the Somali island of Hafun were swept away by the deadly Indian Ocean tsunami, an emergency aid relief team has revealed.

Roads washed away by the sea are hampering the delivery of food aid to some 4,500 islanders affected.

Waves which swept 7,000km (4,000 miles) from the epicentre left a trail of smashed buildings and boats along the East African coast.

More than 130 people in East Africa are known to have died in the floods.

Wave sweeps campers out to sea in Western Australia

A woman and her friend are recovering after being swept into the ocean while camping on the Dampier Archipelago in Western Australia.

The women were asleep in their tent on Delambre Island when a wave pulled them into the sea.

They managed to unzip their tent and swim back to shore.

The husband of one of the women, Greg Stott, says the group has camped at the spot many times and had never seen anything like that before.

"We noticed around 6:00 o'clock that night - the low tide was around about that time - you could just see the water was rising by a foot then lowering by a foot," Mr Stott said.

Very lucky people.

The U.S. State Department is working to find thousands of Americans unaccounted for days after powerful tsunamis struck countries bordering the Indian Ocean.

No exact numbers are available, State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said, but "we're working at any given moment 2,000 to 3,000 names now that we're looking for."

"We shouldn't assume the worst. ... There are often Americans who are outside of the regions that directly suffered who might not have gotten in touch."

Reuters


The state government in India's Tamil Nadu state, which bore the brunt of the Indian Ocean tsunami, on Thursday issued a tsunami alert and warned people to leave coastal areas.

Police said aftershocks in the Andaman and Nicobar islands, near the center of the huge earthquake that caused Sunday's tsunami, were "likely" to cause high waves.

Witnesses said police sirens were blaring on beaches in Tamil Nadu and residents were running away.

Do you get your live seismo at iris.edu? Also, what's been up with the seismo's stateside over the last couple of days? Is it just me or has there been a lot of magmatic activity?

What are they basing this new tsunami alert upon? Does anyone know? There hasn't been any more quakes big enough to generate another tsunami.

I didn't read your post Banshee, but either way if it happens again....this is really bad. One of my fears seems to be coming to pass...


There seems to have been big aftershook quakes, which is why they are issuing this alert. i am not finding anything yet on the web about this thou.

Couple places ... IRIS is good for quick-glance activity, but I use USGS or Redpuma for more detailed info.

I haven't noticed any magmatic activity in the US .... links?

Recent strong aftershocks, apparently. They happened in quick succession and were fairly powerful. The info is still kind of thin, but people are being moved at least 2 miles inland.

This may be case of shutting the barn door after the horse is out. No doubt they are a bit shy after they did get warned but were unable to pass on the previous Tsunami info.
