Yep, agree. No need to dig yourself any deeper.
How’d they get the donkey down there?
So I will say I did not mean to wish harm on anyone and I am deeply and truly sorry for my inappropriate words
God Bless these wonderful people that expelled communism.
good man or woman.....you done good just now
Global warming =s greater earthquakes.
BreakingNews: 6.9 -foot tsunami wave reported at Iquique, Chile, following earthquake
Go and sin no more.
BREAKING: Mayor of Arica, Chile on local TV: Injuries reported, but no deaths so far after 8.2M quake; homes damaged, evacuations continue
I hope it is as small as it sounds and people got out of the way...
TSUNAMI Bulletin 4: Mexico just included within the expanding Tsunami WATCH...
well, next town over is San Diego,are they in panic mode over there?
Hopefully it was far enough out so the quake didn’t do too much. And hope that the warning systems and education of the people all around the Pacific is improved. Looks like Hawaii and New Zealand may bear the brunt of the tsunami as it heads west. I’m guessing their warnings/education is pretty good.
Only the donkey knows.
Tweet from ABC NEWS SEATTLE:
NWS Seattle: Preliminary estimates indicate a tsunami wave of less than half-foot when it hits Wa. coast around 7 a.m. PT
M 4.7 - 181km SSW of Fukue, Japan
(Just don’t try to pronounce it...)
TWEET FROM CNN Rosemary Church:
“CNN Newsroom will hv more coverage of the massive 8.2 mag. earthquake off the northern coast of Chile in 15mins”
Must be important if they are interrupting the MH370 distraction coverage....
I was just reading a link from Drudge and if I understand it correctly it was saying the above 6.9ft. wave is preceding the Tsunami...
Coastal residents of northern Chile evacuated calmly as waves measuring almost 2 meters (6 1/2 feet) struck ahead of a tsunami that was expected to come ashore later.
Reuters: If tsunami waves reach Hawaii they would strike at 9:24 a.m. ET, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said in a statement.
Surf’s up, dude!
OBSERVATIONS OF TSUNAMI ACTIVITY - UPDATED
Live updates on CNN:
Chile quake - IPSL team on the Galápagos have evacuated students. First tsunami waves expected at midnight. All IPSL students are safe.
Maybe they will find the Malaysian airliner surfing on the tsunami!
Yes the Padres are losing to the Dodgers.
CNN news reader just asked if the recent quakes in Los Angles are connected to the quake tonight in Chile...
Landslides block roads as quake off Chile triggers tsunami alert and coastal evacuation http://bbc.in/1i1kD4D pic.twitter.com/hCqqTsRNag
Geogliph hillside figures, old silver mines, Southern Peru Copper, no water to speak of, rough country. Fortunately no big cities I could see on your map. A lot of stone houses which is not too good. A couple of big active volcanos. Prayers, the people in country like that have hard enough lives.
NOW; areas to be evacuated in the city of Viña del Mar, Tsunami alarms are Sounding
Ask the buffalo that are stampeding from Yellowstone. They seem to know.
The buffalo are smarter than CNN...
BBC World Service 2m
Second wave of Tsunami expected in next ten minutes says BBC DelosReyes on BBCNewsday
Even if it was a 6000 year cycle, and it had been 6400 years, the likelihood of it occurring during our lifetime would probably be the same.
Developing: Tsunami waves expected in Talcahuano in 5 minutes
No more than usual.

NOAA: “Sea level readings indicate a tsunami was generated.. It may have been destructive along coasts
And now everyone who has hoped NYC would be nuked by the Muzzies can apologize as well.
You do know that there are more conservatives in California than most other states, don’t you?
Iquique and Arica are cities with approximately 200,000 each.
Why, of course, they aren't natives. Did you expect them to know the language?
Thanks for all the info, a local news teaser said Hawaii officials are preparing for the warning of a tsunami.
Luck to all.
Ugh, I have family getting on a plane to Hawaii tomorrow morning. Wonder if they’ll delay that plane taking off until this thing shakes out (pardon the pun).
3D great tool! Thanks for sharing. Interesting a 5.3 in Southern Atlantic moments before the 8.2 in Chili (3D says it was actually an 8.3 now)
We were stationed at pearl sub base and this was one of my fears. That and jaws.
The next wave may be bigger, and the tsunami may last for hours.
Just after 10 p.m. on May 22, 1960, seismologist Jerry Eaton and four companions assembled at the U.S. Geological Surveys Hawaiian Volcano Observatory on the Island of Hawaii. Gathering cameras, notebooks, flashlights, and steel measuring tapes, they piled into a Ford station wagon for the 30-mile ride down to Hilo. There they hoped to measure the 1960 Chilean tsunami, which was expected to arrive at about midnight.
The men had good reason to measure this tsunami. Hawaii had been struck in the past by deadly tsunamis, including ones from Chile in 1837 and 1877 and one from the Aleutian Islands in 1946 that in Hilo alone killed 98 people. Measurements of past tsunamis are commonly used to help identify areas at risk from future tsunamis. Measurements had been made in Hawaii of Aleutian tsunamis, but little was known about the heights of tsunamis from Chile.
In Hilo, Mr. Eaton and his companions stopped to clear their plans with the police and then drove to the Wailuku River Bridge, on the shore of Hilo Bay. They knew that the 1946 Aleutian tsunami had destroyed the bridge there. The men set up an observation post on the new bridge and began measuring the water level beneath it. Just in case, they also planned their own evacuation route, a short sprint to high ground.
Just after midnight, the water under the bridge rose to 4 feet above normal-the first wave of the tsunami had arrived. At 12:46 a.m., the second wave washed under the bridge at a level 9 feet above normal. By 1:00 a.m., the water beneath the bridge had dropped to 7 feet below normal. Mr. Eaton recalls that they then heard an ominous noise, a faint rumble like a distant train, that came from the darkness far out in Hilo Bay. Two minutes later, they began to see the source of the noise, a pale wall of tumbling water, caught in the dim lights of Hilo. The wave grew in height as it moved steadily toward the city, and the noise became deafening.
By 1:04 a.m., the men on the bridge realized that they should run the few hundred feet to high ground. Turning around, they watched the 20-foot-high, nearly vertical front of the wave hit the bridge, and water splashed high into the air. After this wave had passed and they thought it was safe, Mr. Eaton and his companions returned to the bridge and continued to record the water level during several more waves of the tsunami (see diagram below).
