Is it good that all of the aftershocks are clustered in the centre and southern parts of Haida Gwaii?

I'm making coffee. I don't know where on ATS it came from the 28th is supposedly gonna be a " Big Day " so I'm gonna make some coffee, and keep the RSOE page up ha ha.


I'm not going to bed yet. I do feel ok to though, because I'm at a higher elevation.
Anyways the warning was downgraded to an advisory

I hadn't heard this 28th thing.

I wouldn't read to much into it, It was a typical ATS doom pornesque prediction a while back, the date has only become significant as I heard about the 7.7, and tsunami warning after midnight making it the 28th....

I can't remember what they said, I could try to search but I don't think the date was in the title. Something to do with one of the many October surprise threads.

Seriously, I wouldn't read to much into it, I'm just being paranoid.

According to CNN in 28 minutes Hawaii will be hit by a 7 foot tsunami followed by 3-7 foot waves...


Waves between 3 and 7 feet are expected to lash the islands, beginning about 10:28 p.m. local time Saturday (4:28 a.m. Sunday ET), the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.

"Basically this tsunami is pointed right at us," said Gerard Fryer, senior geophysicist at the center.

The impact could last for hours.

"It's not just one wave, it's a succession of waves," Fryer said. "We are recommending coastal evacuation."

between 5 to 10 feets (my opinion)
the news say 1 to 4 feets .. but it could be higher (dont trust the news)
7th floor ? he is safe but he should go on the roof just in case
tell him to get his familly, friends and other people who dont have higher ground like him

considering the waves are estimated at 7 feet, on the 7th floor she's 63 feet above it, she should be fine.

can anyone explain how a 7 foot tsunami wave is different than any normal one? does it just keep pushing forward until it hits a certain height of ground?

Just left my job on the coast (Big Island), sirens have been going off for the last couple hours. Some resorts are evacuating, heavy traffic going uphill.

Hopefully the impact well be minimal, should know within the hour.

Yes, unlike a regular wave that quickly receeds, tsunami waves keep on going inland.

If wave heigh tis what I'm reading it should be then 7th floor should be safeish. My building is on the leeward (west) coast of Oahu and only evacuating the 1st & 2nd floors.

As long as you are higher than 7ft you should be okay, but I don't know the topography well, 7ft high waves can exert enormous amounts of energy.
