TOKYO (AP) -- Japan's Meteorological Agency issues tsunami warning for country's east coast after magnitude 8.3 earthquake in northern Japan.
Let's pray for lesser in this case.
Our high tide here on the Oregon coast is at around 2:30 am 7.7 ft high and the tsunami advisory is for 4:45 a.m.
Crud now I am not going to be able to sleep. Oh I forgot I am a day sleeper.
It will be sunrise/dawn here and the rare snow we had that is now a layer of ice won't allow me to look out at the water.
So who do you think is right?
The USGS that says 7.7 magnitude, or the noaa tsunami people who say 8.4?
Your welcome, my cousin is a noaa guy who works on this stuff in Hawaii, I'm going to send him an email later, I'm quite sure he's a bit busy right now.
That is quite a huge area for this advisory.
From BC down to Mexico!
