It will have to happen very close to the shore
last tsunami in indonesia was not that big .. 3-4 meters

30 meter is a monster .. never saw a tsunami that big before
do we know those exist ?

Originally posted by PuterManWiki used to show this information on the page about the Richter scale but have removed all reference to it. I believe I am right in saying that Hiroshima was a 20 kTon weapon but some reports say a 13 kTon weapon or anything in between. I will use 15 kilo tons as the benchmark.

Based in nuclear weapon yields the Magnitude 8.6 event today was 103,274 kilotons approximately or roughly 6.885 Hiroshima bombs.

The 9.1 was 580,751 kilotons or about 38,784 Hiroshima bombs.


Great. That's a very helpful comparison to more illustratively wrap my understanding around.

If anyone comes across or can calculate how large a mountain could be moved say 100 feet by 100 pj of energy, that would also be more vividly illustrative.

Thanks again Puterman for coming through as usual.

Yup those look good showing a peak to trough of around .6 metres

ETA: and over a reasonable time as well.

No, it was mentioned. I don't believe that's the size, but more earthquakes in the area is going to change the dynamics, IMO.

LOL...Julie must be plugged right into the global matrix. She seems to be getting the news faster than even the earth is. Are you working with HAARP?

So sometime in the next 2 hours the tsunami will hit? How come they said it was supposed to hit an hour ago?
