    Yes, 5.7 ft (1.74 m) Kahului - 4.6 ft (1.4m) Hilo. Streets are still dry here. Some damage up at Santa Cruz harbor - boats broken loose, docks damaged.

    Reports now of 6 ft waves at 28 min intervals Kahului.

    More than 1000 killed in Japan.

    I was in no way implying the world is coming to and end. I understand that it is a natural cycle of lunar orbit and has occured many many times in the past. I was just wondering if anyone knew or thought there was merit to the claim a supermoon in some way influenced this from a scientific standpoint. Perhaps triggered it early. I personally know nothing of the topic and never heard the term supermoon until a few days ago.


    EDIT:
    I guess I should have taken note what kind of people were claiming this.... LOL. Astrologers.... I need new glasses. That is hardly scientific. Nevermind.

    It's hardly unscientific either really.... The moon being at its peak potential for gravitational influence could easily influence seismic activity, it would only be a fool who would say otherwise.

    Whether or not the Supermoon theory will be as catastrophic as the loonies are saying will have to remain to be seen. But the fact is that the moon will be exceptionally close and potent in the upcoming days and weeks and that the entire Ring of Fire should take heed of that. Japan is in a highly volatile region, but an 8.9 quake corresponding with the moon's activities seems pretty obviously connected to me.

    It was strange we got a Tsunami warning on the radio, kind of eerie! But I live on the Inside Passage, so I am more or less safe from Tsunamis.

    My heart goes out to Japan and I say good luck to all those on the Pacific outer coast!

    I was making light of the fact that the "loonies" were not basing thier predictions on scientific principles.

    I would think there may be some merit to increased seismic activity. Increased stress to the earth's crust due to a closer than normal moon could very well accelerate a shift in the earth's crust. Something that would have probably occured anyways over time, but sped up due to the moon being closer to the earth perhaps.

    But then again, I am talking about things I have absolutely no clue about and don't pretend to.

    Moon = gravitational influences = seismic activity

    Those seem like some pretty fundamental scientific principles.

    except it doesnt make that much of a difference, there is a fraction of a percent increase in seismic activity at high tides.......
