Oh no! I'm supposed to be going to Hawaii this Sunday for my sister's wedding. I sure hope not. It is supposed to be such a happy occasion, but for some reason, things haven't felt right about the trip. My husband and daughter fly out on the 24th. Seriously don't have a good feeling about this trip. My gut instincts are usually pretty spot on...more than anything, I hope I'm wrong.

From PTWC...
THAT's not good, I think...
Since I have heard the waves are not noticeable on "open water" this must mean the first wave has come ashore?

Sorry for the NOOB posts.

Look At what Alaska is doing.

This is getting interesting. Cali hasn't moved an inch.

Where is our earthquake maestro? this would be a pre cursor i think he'd say, the next one should be within 14 days north of that epicenter about the same intensity.

Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee and Arkansas.

14 days from now would be the 1st Oct 2015, a few days after the famed 23rd September 2015 doomsday. Are you saying there should be a big one along California area?

I did read members posting on about Quakes and Tsunami dreams predictions on here.

Most recent news from AP:


At least three aftershocks above magnitude-6 and other strong shakes rattled the region as tsunami alarms sounded in the port of Valparaiso in the first major quake since a powerful quake and tsunami killed hundreds in 2010 and leveled part of a southern Chilean city.

Officials ordered people to evacuate low-lying areas along the 2,400 miles (3,900 kilometers) of Chile's Pacific shore, from Puerto Aysen in the south to Arica in the north. Cars streamed inland carrying people to higher ground.

There were no immediate reports of injuries, but authorities said some adobe houses collapsed in the inland city of Illapel, about 175 miles (280 kilometers) north of Santiago.

Illapel's mayor, Denis Cortes, told a local television station that electricity was out in the city. "We are very scared. Our city panicked," he said.

The U.S. Geological Survey initially reported the quake at a preliminary magnitude of 7.9 but quickly revised the reading upward to 8.3. U.S. officials said the quake struck just offshore in the Pacific at 7:54 p.m. (6:54 p.m. EDT, 1154 GMT) and was centered about 141 miles (228 kilometers) north-northwest of Santiago. It said the quake was 4.8 miles (5 kilometers) below the surface.

It looks like if any tsunami was generated, it would hit Hawaii about 15 hrs. from the quake.

Im not a pro but from years of reading TAs post i would suppose they are in the clear and it dissipated......

Praying for all those involved, and hope it stays quiet

wonder if FIJI got hit with anything
