Sure glad I'm in the interior and not back on the Rock, lol

The thought of a tsunami frightens me

Frightens me too when I'm in the same zone on BC Coastline.

I want to say that is at least the 2nd 6.9 or so to hit that area within a month or two. (I could be thinking of elsewhere) but I remember another big one hitting us a month or two ago. We also got hit in Anchorage and unsure where else with a 5.4 the other day.

This doesn't match my dream location or magnitude, but it could be a precursor. Keeps your heads on a swivel up there folks.
