Any tsunami warnings for the area?
The last big quakes cause much damage mainly because of them.


Yeah, my work puts out warnings for the Australian area (so i get the warnings as soon as they come out). We currently have a possibility of one hitting northern queensland, however in saying that, no Tsunamis have been observed as of yet.

Will update when I get the next warning

Apparently the last 8.0 Samoa earthquake has triggered a lava dome collapse at Chaiten volcano in Chile:

Tsumani warning in South Pacific


A tsunami warning has been issued for Papua New Guinea and island nations in the south-west Pacific after a 7.8-magnitude earthquake off Vanuatu.

The epicentre was 295km (180 miles) north-northwest of Vanuatu's largest island, Santo, at a depth of 35km (21.7 miles), the US Geological Survey said.

There have so far been no immediate reports of injuries of damage.

More than 170 people died last week when a tsunami triggered by an quake hit Samoa, American Samoa and Tonga.

Earlier on Wednesday, a 6.7-magnitude quake struck off the Philippines, but no tsunami warning was issued.

Shortly after the earthquake off Vanuatu struck at 2203 GMT, the Pacific Region Headquarters of the US National Weather Service said a tsunami warning was in effect for Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Tuvalu, New Caledonia, Fiji, Kiribati, Kosrae, Wallis and Futuna, and the Howland and Baker islands.

Yes

In the ring of fire...or the area which surrounds the pacific ocean, thes places are notorious for having mulitple quakes.

Good to see that they have taken the appropriate precaustion and moved people to higher ground.

Now warning from our departemtn yet about wether or not a Tsunami has been confirmed
