Don't want to be alarmist but RSOE EDIS is reporting that a Tsunami HAS BEEN detected.

So I don't know how far reaching it will be but check any local emergency broadcasts if you are on the coast in West Coast America.

CNN is far better for this kind of thing anyway.

People keep saying there aren't more quakes this year than ever and perhaps that's true. However, either there are more earthquakes or there is more coverage of earthquakes or there is more earthquakes occurring in populated areas. It seems the magnitude of earthquakes keeps up in the 7.0+ area.

No tsunami for the West Coast:

wcatwc.arh.noaa.gov...



To: U.S. West Coast, Alaska, and British Columbia coastal regions From: NOAA/NWS/West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center Subject: Tsunami Information Statement #1 issued 02/26/2010 at 10:49PM PST

A strong earthquake has occurred, but a tsunami IS NOT expected along the California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, or Alaska coast. NO tsunami warning, watch or advisory is in effect for these areas.

A tsunami may have been generated that could potentially impact the U.S. west coast, British Columbia, and Alaska. The West Coast/Alaska Tsunami Warning Center is investigating the event to determine the level of danger. More information will be issued as it becomes available.

At 10:34 PM Pacific Standard Time on February 26, an earthquake with preliminary magnitude 8.5 occurred near the coast of central Chile . (Refer to the United States Geological Survey for official earthquake parameters.)

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Ewa Beach, Hawaii will issue a tsunami warning for regions near the epicenter.

Messages will continue to be issued hourly by the WCATWC until the event status is upgraded to a warning or advisory, or until the center has determined that the event poses no threat to the California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and Alaska coasts.

See the WCATWC web site for basic tsunami information, safety rules, and a tsunami travel time map and table. (NOTE: Travel time maps and tables indicate forecasted times only, not that a wave dangerous to the U.S. and Canadian coasts was generated.)

they changed the epicenter and magnitude to 8.3 upon further review. It WAS offshore, meaning a possible threat of tsunami may exist. But so close, no time at all if there was one, it has already hit.

New epicenter has it about three miles offshore. They had about 1- 2 minutes. Maybe 3 if lucky before it hit.

8.5 is big. Japan, Cali, then this. Stay alert people, be vigilant.

Updated it's 8.8 not 8.5

Need I remind you, richter scale is not a linear scale.

Not what I was wanting to hear. I am just going to keep hoping that by some miracle the population has come out of this relatively OK.

A 7.0 in Japan and an 8.5 within 12 hours of each other this is real bad. Seems like the end of the world has started

Yeah I know, but wait what was I thinking. At 3 miles offshore, and approximately 600 miles per hour/60 = 10 miles per minute. Sorry, those in the city of Curanipe- well, dear God. 1 minute if lucky before it hit.

Just hope people that it was a minor tsunami, if there was one.

Me too now. I have the plugin for Firefox though so any further quakes will be reported through it as they happen.

It can't monitor the tsunami warnings or volcano though.
