How about to the Aleutians and the Alaskan coast?
Or to CNMI?
someday there will a powerful tsunami. Can major Hawaii cities evacuate to high ground in time on a Saturday night?
Wow. 7.7 is a strong earthquake.
I don’t know. This was just upgraded to an 8.0
Just upgraded to 8.0 per my phone app.
That would not be hard unless you are disabled.
You can walk to higher ground on any island within 30 minutes or less and you’d have a lot longer warning than that ... at least a few hours.
If you stayed in your car and got caught in the traffic you would not make it.
That is a very, very strong quake.
Dad (R.I.P.) was in Hawaii a few years ago & there was a warning to evacuate in Honolulu area one April Saturday evening.
Tsunami.gov has a tsunami advisory posted.
If I had a boat in Cresent City harbor I think I would head out to sea until it passes. They seem to get it even when there is no warning.
8.0 is indeed a very strong quake:
19 minutes ago:
“A tsunami Advisory is now in effect which includes the coastal areas of Alaska from Samalga Pass, Alaska (30 miles SW of Nikolski) to Attu, Alaska ...
Stay away from the beach. Tsunamis can travel hundreds of miles per hour, so you cant escape if youre close enough to see one.”
I didn’t feel a thing here in SoCal.
