Hard to say, but aftershocks tend to be a good sign.

With the way the aftershocks are migrating I would not be surprised at all to see another aftershock, or even another seperate large event within 1.0 mag point from the original


Lets just hope they quit migrating south!!

Tsunami watch here in Hawaii. The sirens are blaring nonstop. Sounds like an air-raid! Contacts in the Coast Guard here are taking the cutters out. This could be big!!@

Yes they are usually just a precaution because we are always getting them and nothing happens.

I just got my wifi back to read through the thread to find out if I'm under warning or not. My news says yes we are but I can't find an official warning to read about to confirm. I would like to know where they get this from. For now I am going with it won't happen.

Best of luck for you. We don`t have a concrete warning here in Japan yet.

Thoughts and prayers to everyone affected/possibly affected.

I hope the aftershocks are just signs of the beast going back to sleep, but you never know.

I know people have mentioned it, but how weird would it be to have an event on the West Coast (presumably primarily Canada but still the same continent) and then Sandy on the East Coast. Part of me is glad I live in the middle of the country, but we can get our fair share here too so I better hold my tongue.

I'm on the mainland (just outside of Vancouver) and we are keeping alert.

Does anyone know what the timeline was for the earthquakes in Japan to when the tsunami hit?



I would be very surprised if Vancouver got any wave action, the gulf islands & narrow Johnson Straight would prevent that. Same goes for Seattle.
I am in Port Moody, and we did not feel anything, but my wife did notice our hanging glass chandelier start to swing back and forth at the time of the quake.

Depending on where you are located, you could be making the last mistake of your life.

I`m seeing in CNN that they are issuing an alert for Northern California now.

The way these aftershocks were moving away from the epi, and now have moved back to the actual subduction fault, makes me very uneasy!

I doubt the delta will be affected. I would be worried about the coast.

"The first wave was expected to Craig about 9:10 p.m. local time, but it wasn't expected to be large, about 1-foot.

'That's the predicted arrival time for the first wave, which typically is not the largest but nevertheless we don't expect the maximum wave height to be large,' said Bill Knight at the West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center.

He said any forecast that includes waves of 1-foot to 3 1/2-feet qualifies for an advisory threat level, which does not mean a full-fledged evacuation.

'It does mean pulling back from harbors, marinas, getting off the beach,' Knight said. "

Unless I am missing something, some of you seem to be blowing this out of proportion(as usual). I am pretty sure no ones life is in danger. Thanks for the heads up though.

No, the mainland will probably not see any wave action but the Queen Charlotte fault is connected to the Cascadia subduction zone.

Its rare, but it does happen. Before the massive Japan quake there was a single 7.2... then the 9.0...

Is it possible that the pressures being created by Sandy on the other side of the continent could affect the faults?

just got a picture of several slides taking place disguising the tsunamis.
