Hi All,
There is a Tsunami advisory in effect for Hawaii at this time...

Please see this link from CNN..

www.cnn.com...

Here is part of the news story...

"Meanwhile, tsunami warnings and watches issued after the quake for several Central and South American countries were canceled Wednesday night, but a tsunami advisory for Hawaii was not.

The advisory means there is no immediate threat, but the situation is being monitored.

"An evaluation of the Pacific-wide tsunami threat is under way, and there is a possibility that Hawaii could be elevated to a watch or warning status," the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said in an advisory issued about 9:30 p.m. ET.

"If tsunami waves impact Hawaii, their estimated earliest arrival time is 2:14 a.m." Thursday, or 8:14 a.m. ET."

From what I understand all tsunami warnings from this event in the entire Pacific Basin have been canceled. There was a tsunami generated from the quake, but it was only about 12 inches high.

It is an "Advisory" for Hawaii, not a warning...They will just have to wait and see tonight...scary...

There was a 6.3 in Peru a few minutes ago. All the aftershocks so far had been under 6.0.

Weird thing is that the Lima sighting (dont know how true it was) from a couple months back led someone to say (on youtube) that the UFO fleet seemed to be warning of exactly such a danger. Coincidence?

I think the youtube link is this one:

Wow, there have been many earthquakes lately. I can't remember a time in my life when in such a small span of time so many large earth quakes have happen. I hope that each big earth quake is skaing the earth a little leading to a bigger one and so on...

How could the fleet be warning of an earthquake?

There are a bunch of planets perfectly aligned at the moment- that always brings chaos. Also, see Earthfiles.com, about crop circles pointing to AUGUST 18. Its like a countdown.

August 18th? But that's my last day at work!

And hey, it might be my last day on Earth as well. Who knows. >_>

But yeah, currently watching CNN for details on the Peru earthquake. 337 dead, 1,350 hurt, and yet I bet this will get less overall coverage than Paris Hilton when she was released from jail.

Probably Sonic, its disgusting. If I worked for the media and tried to push for this story to be covered, to no avail, I wouldn't be able to sleep at night.
