This really is a very small world, isn't it?
I didn't realize the wave went all the way
around the world.

The tsunami waves that ripped countries in the Indian Ocean basin was also felt along the United States' east coast, including the Brevard County, Fla., coastline, according to a The New York Times report Friday.

The waves that reached Central Florida were so small that only tide gauges noticed the swells, according to the report.

A tide gauge at Port Canaveral recorded 13.4-inch waves some 32 hours after the earthquake hit off Sumatra's northwest coast on Dec. 26, according to Dr. Alexander B. Rabinovich of the Canadian Institute of Ocean Sciences in Sidney, British Columbia.

The Times said the tsunami was so powerful that it swept around the world over 36 hours, with its last waves affecting tide gauges from Russia's remote northeastern Pacific waters to the North Atlantic.

What goes around comes around.

It's amazing how the energy spread so far and wide.
32 hours later, and it still pushed water around on the other side of the planet.

Although, The Earthquake echoed, and bounced around the inside of the earth too.

All this data will be analyzed for years to come.

Sometimes it is hard to comprehend that what happens on one side will eventually get to the other side.
Just goes to show that we need to be more careful, because what we do will affect everyone else in the end as well.

Thank you for the link.
