The tsunami warning for coastal areas of British Columbia seems the most urgent.

This just popped up on the recent threads list www.abovetopsecret.com...

Seems there's another thread that was started just a few minutes before this one.

Thank you OP - saw this one first and went straight to all the earthquake sites.
