It's on every TV channel in Tokyo. Pacific and north coast of Hokkaido in red, the entire coastline of Honshu down to Osaka in yellow.

Didn't feel the earthquake though.

On a side note, a FReeper posted a thread about high waves that's interesting, but the timing and math are a little wrong, LOL.

okay this report is only seconds old.

It is tsunami report #3. #2 mentioned hawaii and the 8.2 magnitude update.

#3 now says,

"A Tsunami Warning is in effect which includes the Alaska coastal areas from Dutch Harbor, Alaska to Attu, Alaska.

A Tsunami Watch is in effect for the British Columbia and Alaska coastal areas from the north tip of Vancouver I., British Columbia to Dutch Harbor, Alaska."

Keep tuned in here, someone will surely ping you.

OK tsunami update #3 isn't really newer than #2, it's just that #3 and #2 cover different geographical areas. #2 is hawaii and to the east, while #3 is the coastline from alaska down to vancouver. So #3 won't mention hawaii, but hawaii is still on the tsunami watch.

Tsunami warning issued for part of Alaska

By DAN JOLING, Associated Press Writer

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Officials issued a tsunami warning for parts of Alaska on Friday night after an 8.3-magnitude earthquake struck in the northern Pacific.

The quake at 7:23 Alaska time was east of the Kuril Islands northeast of Japan.

The West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center said it was not immediately known if a tsunami was generated.

But it issued a warning for the western Aleutians Islands from the villages of Nikolski to Adak and warned that people in low-lying coastal areas should remain alert to instructions from local emergency officials.

Adak is a community of 167 about 1,300 miles southwest of Anchorage. Nikolski is a village of 31 about 900 miles southwest of Anchorage.

The warning center issued a tsunami watch for the rest of the Aleutians and coastal areas along southcentral Alaska to Seward.

If a tsunami was generated, the center warned, the first waves would reach Dutch Harbor at 11:41 p.m. and Kodiak Island by 1:12 a.m. Saturday.

The center also warned that tsunamis are a series of waves potentially dangerous several hours after initial arrival time.

Pat Robertson's Tsunami Prediction?

Surprised no one has mentioned this. It was almost a half year ago he relayed the sense from prayer he had experienced. I don't pay him much attention, but I was surprised he made such a prophetic statement. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,195931,00.html

It depends what time zone you have selected for your FR settings/options.

You can have FR set to PT, ET and maybe even CT. You can change this in the options.

In fact, I used to see PT in my posts, until I figured out that could be changed. Right now, at the bottom of my posts, it says "1:16AM EST"

Yeah, but he said he was wrong on that one and he really meant the flooding in New England.

I watched the big tsunami unfold live on FR. I picked it up 15 minutes of the quake and stayed up till 3AM. It was the most helpless feeling to watch and know, and not be able to do anything. I have been on this event since 3 minutes after first post. It is frustrating and yet, you can't stop watching.
