Is this related to all the small shocks being felt in Australia? I am curious to know if any pets were acting strange just before this happened. Thoughts and prayers to anyone affected by this.

Hey, we posted it looked like at the same exact time, I have mine under "Fragile Earth", I am going to go ahead and leave it, because it also has a link to a LIVE Fiji Webcam, that seems to be scanning the horizon and shoreline (receding water watch) for a tsunami.

tonga?

I didn't really keep up to date on that underwater volcano eruption.
So excuse me if i make a stupid comment.

But if a volcano erupted underwater, might the water be very hot right now
won't that really really possibly worsen a tsunami since tsunamis grow stonger with warm water?

I had to keep adding to mine to get it to go. I hope this is a non event. We could all use some good news instead of this crap.
