quakes above 7.5 can make tsunamis.

PINGING!

Just recieved an advisory via 911 on the scanner to all units.

I wonder why my NOAA radio has not sent out an advisory?

Also no e mail notice of the quake like I usually get.

The USGS is calling it a quake in Russia east of Kuril Islands.

Oh there went my e mail ping for the USGS notification.

Looks to be in fairly deep water south of the Kamchatka Peninsula. So yea a tsunami at Hawaii is a possibility.

Weather channel now saying there is NO tsunami expected for the west coast of America.

I'm glad - because I'm in San Diego - but I live about 13 miles inland from the ocean.

Looking at the summary on USGS. This was pretty shallow, only 6.2 miles down. Does that mean it could cause a bigger wave?

It's Bush's fault.

By not signing the Kyoto treaty and sending more troops to kill terrorists in Iraq, he is making the earthquake gods angry and they are lashing out in fury.

If only Pelosi or Hillary were president, then the earth would be at peace.

Conflicting magnitude though.
Reports of 7.7
or 8.4.

What did your cell ping say, my e mail ping said 7.4 but the 911 advisory (our local county 911) said 8.4

Hmmm and nothing on the NOAA radio.

My prayers for your son. I did training in the Navy Reserves at Misawa, and it's on the northern end of Honshu. God Speed. I was there in the 80's when a 5.5 hit and it was impressive at THAT level!

I still only see 7.7 magnitude on USGS quake website.

I wonder if the 8.4/8.3 reports are wrong. That is a huge difference. 7.7 is barely enough to make a tsunami, 8.4 would make a big one

looks like they changed it to an 8.4, either way - it was a big one.

It appears that about 30,000 people live on the Kuril islands. And there is a volcano there as well. (according to wikipedia). Definitely praying.

TOKYO -- Japan's Meteorological Agency issued tsunami warnings Saturday following a magnitude 8.3 earthquake in the Pacific Ocean.

The agency says a 3.3-foot-high tsunami could hit the northeastern coast of Japan's northern island of Hokkaido around 2 p.m. (12 a.m. EST).
