This is Santa Cruz/ Solomon Islands in the South Pacific. Not California.

According to Global Incident Map, they were hit with 3 8's about 50 mins ago.
Following that there have been a few 3's, 4's and a 5!

Oh man, I live in Brisbane, right on the coast there. Hope there is no tsunami warning for us! We'd be in the perfect location for it as well

He's saying that he's not sure that these are after-shocks, but possibly fore-shocks to an even bigger quake.


Watching this thread closely.

I had to google this myself P waves short for primary are first eveidence of a quake and have fat short wavelengths that do little damage, unfortunately shortly thereafter they can be followed by S waves for Secondary with longer wavelengths apparently the S waves are the ones you gotta worry about.

Learn something new everyday, new wrinkle on me, first time I've heard of P and S outside of postscript.

"A tsunami warning was issued by the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii shortly before 2.30pm and was followed up by a second advisory nearly half an hour later saying sea level readings indicated a tsunami had been generated."

"It may have been destructive along coasts near the earthquake epicenter and could also be a threat to more distant coasts."

I'm watching that too.

Problem is, where she's at they have NOTHING. NO way of contacting her.

I've had a feeling for a long time though. Last thing I said to her as I was hugging her before she was left (so no one else could hear) was that if there was a big quake, or the water ever rapidly pulled back from the shore....to RUN inland and UP as fast as possible.

ETA; looks like a 6.6

I can't seem to find any updates other than tsunami warnings... no actual confirmation of a tsunami, which could be a good thing.

Anyone else find confirmation ?

Indeed, the 8.0 was only 5.8 miles deep, while the 5.6 was 10.1
6.4 was 10.1
5.6 was 10.0
5.7 was 10.0
6.6 was 10.2

Hmmm, doesn't look good.

Yes...so far NOAA confirmed one wave of 3 feet

Go to the filter top of page and click Tsunamis. Buoys in Event Mode are blinking.
Click each one for details.

Great link Yngvarr.
www.ndbc.noaa.gov...
You can see a bow of buoy's reporting an increase in wave height, primarily,
buoy's 52402, 52406, 51425, 55012.
However the multitude of others, not so much.

Ok, I just found confirmation from ABC news:


Solomons quake triggers tsunami, destroys villages

Updated 3 minutes ago

Map: Solomon Islands

A magnitude 8.0 earthquake off Solomon Islands has generated a tsunami and reportedly destroyed villages, although the Bureau of Meteorology says Australia is not at risk.

1:16pm: The tsunami warning centre says a 90cm tsunami is now hitting Solomon Islands.

1:15pm: Here's what we know so far: The United States Geological Survey said the quake was a shallow 5.8 kilometres deep and the epicentre was 347km east of Kira Kira.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre (PTWC) confirmed a tsunami had been generated and said it could be destructive near the epicentre.

A local hospital director quoted by the AFP news agency said some villages in Solomon Islands had been destroyed.


ABC News

If I'm reading this correctly, the tsunami thus far is not severe...

I think what Cranial was saying was the tsunami wasn't yet severe.

Destroying villages does sound severe. If that report is correct, then that sounds awful.
