It'd be interesting to see if squid weren't the only aquatic species prone to act unusually after an earthquake...I'd be too precautious to swim just yet as it could be your last if a humungous swarm of jellyfish or great whites determined to head for the shallower waters. Also,If I knew that I was anywhere near tsunami territory I'd be sure to scout out and take note of the locations of as many possible floatation type implements as possible in ADVANCE!
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii warned that a tsunami was generated, but it later said the waves were less than 8 inches in height and the warning was canceled after about an hour.
The Joint Australian Tsunami Warning Centre also issued a tsunami alert for eastern Australia that was still in effect late Wednesday.
Australian emergency services ordered the evacuation of low-lying parts of coastal towns and villages along Lord Howe Island, BNONews reported.
However, no reports of serious damage or injuries were received, police said.
Scientists with New Zealand's Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences were working with their U.S. counterparts late Wednesday to reconcile their readings with those taken overseas. The quake was reported locally at 6.6 magnitude before reports from the U.S. listed it at 7.8 magnitude and as high as 8.2.
