SEA LEVEL READINGS INDICATE A TSUNAMI WAS GENERATED. A RECORDED
WAVE AMPLITUDE OF 23 CM HAS BEEN OBSERVED AT PORT VILA, VANUATU.
THIS IS ONLY AN INITIAL MEASUREMENT OF THE FIRST ARRIVING TSUNAMI
WAVE. HIGHER WAVE AMPLITUDES MAY YET TO BE OBSERVED ALONG COASTS
NEAR THE EARTHQUAKE EPICENTER. FOR THOSE AREAS - WHEN NO MAJOR
WAVES ARE OBSERVED FOR TWO HOURS AFTER THE ESTIMATED TIME OF
ARRIVAL OR DAMAGING WAVES HAVE NOT OCCURRED FOR AT LEAST TWO HOURS THEN LOCAL AUTHORITIES CAN ASSUME THE THREAT IS PASSED.

i HAVE A ruler in my hand . . . that I brought back from Taipei. It has cm on one side and inches on the other. 60.5 cm = about 24 inches

I would expect more of a Tsunami than that if it's that big a quake that near the surface. . . . just layman me talking.

Actually 23cm is 230 mm, which equals 0.23m, or about 9 inches.

Quake was felt MM7 at Port Vila (the capital), thats getting up there

MM VII. Frightened all - general alarm, all ran outdoors. Some, or many, found it difficult to stand. Noticed by persons driving motor cars. Trees and bushes shaken moderately to strongly. Waves on ponds, lakes, and running water. Water turbid from mud stirred up. Incaving to some extent of sand or gravel stream banks. Rang large church bells, etc. Suspended objects made to quiver. Damage negligible in buildings of good design and construction, slight to moderate in well-build ordinary buildings, considerable in poorly build or badly designed buildings, abode houses, old walls (especially where laid up without mortar), spires, etc. Cracked chimneys to considerable extent, walls to some extent. Fall of plaster in considerable to large amount, also some stucco. Broke numerous windows, furniture to some extent. Shook down loosened brickwork and tiles. Broke weak chimneys at the roof-line (sometimes damaging roof. Fall of cornices from towers and high buildings. Dislodged bricks and stones. Overturned heavy furniture, with damage from breaking. Damage considerable to concrete irrigation ditches.

No, it's 230mm. You're thinking of 230 centimetres to be over 6ft. No need for the anger.

230cms is 2300mms or, 2.3metres.

Sorry the confusion arises from it was 2 point 3 metres at Port Havannah and Natapao , not 23cm
My mistake in the first place

Your right, but the tsunami was still 6ft+

Big confusion here? So let me, a Norwegian using the metric system convert it to feet and inches.


23 cm = 230 mm = 0,23 meter. And in inches? 23 cm = 9.1 in
So, 1 centimeter = 0.393700787 inches




(CNN) -- A major earthquake struck the island nation of Vanuatu on Tuesday, the U.S. Geological Survey said. The 7.5-magnitude quake, with a depth of 35 kilometers (27 miles), struck 40 kilometers (25 miles) west-northwest of the capital, Port Vila. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center reported a wave of 23 centimeters (9 inches) at Port Vila.

(Reuters) - A magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck off the South Pacific archipelago of Vanuatu on Thursday, briefly prompting a tsunami warning which was later canceled.


Where did you get the info regarding a 6 feet wave?

Pacific Tsunami Warning Center have no warning.

My apologies


Whats the odds of the GDACS model predicting 2.3 metres and the actual wave being .23 metres ? ( Natapao)
