    Tsunami warnings issued for Pacific rim

    Hey all, chances are you'll hear this via other channels before here, but in case you're like me and without TV, please be advised; there was a series of massive quakes off the Pacific coast of Japan earlier, and a tsunami is headed towards Hawaii and the west coast. (And elsewhere in the Pacific I imagine.) It's due to strike my area in the early morning, but will reach Hawaii in the next few hours. If you're in a low-lying coastal area, please check your local emergency broadcasts.
    I know we don't have many members in Japan, but I can think of several of you in the region of the south China seas, and I hope you and yours are safe.
    Please take care,
    ~Joe

    ETA Seattle 8:44 PST, Santa Monica 8:31 PST

    Honolulu 3:15 HST Wellington NZ 7:53 DST Rarotonga Cook Islands 6:34 ST

    Tsunami safe zone for me is about 1/4 mile up the road. Mach should be ok in Upcountry, I don't know about some of the others in HI. I sent messages to my friends on Rarotonga.

    Update: Radio is reporting 3 ft waves in Hawaii

    The Bushwacker

    The 51' 1 million $ yacht I crew on, cannot leave the Port due to rough seas at the Chetco Bar.
    Looks like we will have to stand back and watch the damage occur here.

    Don't really know if it will make it into the sound to be seen in Seattle, but according to the NWS southern Oregon is about to see the arrival of the first waves (IE, not even the biggest ones.) Scary stuff. Just got word from my godmother down near Carlsbad that she's OK and a safe distance out. Poised with binoculars, heh.
    Stay safe friends.

    How horrible.

    Wonder if this has anything to do with the supermoon event? I know nothing about it, but have seen a few ramblings online the last few days saying stuff like this could happen as a result.
