it is insane. Randomly on the T.V. was one of those warnings where it beeps and what not and the white words come across, saying an there is a tsunami warning for san diego until 10:28. On the yahoo site it says 7.0 but on the warning it said it was 7.4

They issued us a warning down here when on Yahoo it says northern california, thats weird. Everyone near the beaches is supposed to get out and find higher ground.

And the warning extends from the Mexico border to Vancover Island
www.washingtonpost.com...



CRESCENT CITY, Calif. -- A major earthquake struck Tuesday night about 80 miles off the coast of northern California, prompting a tsunami warning along the Pacific coast.

The 7.0-magnitude quake struck at about 7:50 p.m. southwest of the coastal community of Crescent City, according to the U.S. Geological Survey Web site.

A tsunami warning was in effect from the California-Mexico border north to Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

Residents were being evacuated from low-lying areas of Crescent City, KCBS radio reported.

EUREKA -- A major earthquake struck Tuesday night about 80 miles off the coast of northern California, prompting a tsunami warning along the Pacific coast.

The 7.0-magnitude quake struck at about 7:50 p.m. southwest of the coastal community of Crescent City, according to the U.S. Geological Survey Web site.

I have NOTHING to worry about, i live near the hills :-).

Oh, forgot to mention, I live in San jose, near Los Gatos, so we have the tsunami warnings too. So, I shouldn't have anything to worry unless the waves are over 3,000 feet.

I am in San Diego tonight and I saw the TV alert as well... I think that if there was going to be a tsunami, we would have heard about other places further up the coast being effect by now, no? The earthquake was only 80 miles offshore. I think the warnings/bulletins are just a precaution.
