Al Gore was fake, the Chilean Earthquakes are real.

If you have interests near the Pacific Ocean, read up on the Tsunami
warnings for the area of your interest.


6:01am HST (11:01am EDT) Evac sirens sounded across the Hawaii Islands and the wave is expected at 11:05am HST (4:05pm EDT) this is updated as it was 11:19am before.

Tsunami evacuation zone areas are being advised to evacuate. But of course the online maps are actually offline today for some reason.

I'd guess HI civil defence would not mind some quick assistance by a CDN..


The telephone book versions are online though.

Scroll down a ways.

For anyone interested in live tv coverage http://www.weatherserver.net/earthquake/ They are windows media feeds from Hawaii TV stations.


Is a good place to read the warnings and data about measured tsunamai heights.

The Tsunami is big enough to be dangerous but seems not to be too major :


LOTTIN PT NZ 37.6S 178.2E 1934Z 0.15M / 0.5FT 10MIN
CABO SAN LUCAS MX 22.9N 109.9W 1833Z 0.36M / 1.2FT 12MIN
ACAPULCO MX 16.8N 99.9W 1549Z 0.16M / 0.5FT 24MIN
PAPEETE TAHITI 17.5S 149.6W 1810Z 0.16M / 0.5FT 10MIN
People on the Pacific coast should of course certainly pay attention to the warnings of their local authorities.

It depends on where you are located, not just how distant you are from Chili but also the angle. They are forecasting a cone-shaped zone of effect heading directly towards Hawaii. See:


CNN reported a few minutes ago that the tsunami hit New Zealand about 1 hour ago. Hawaii is ~3 hours more distant (as the wave travels) from the location of the earthquake in Chili than New Zealand, so the expectation is that the wave will hit Hawaii a little later than first forecast.

ObNANOG: Does anyone know if transoceanic cable landing facilities are sited and built to resist damage a tsunami of a particular height/strength? (Thinking back to the video of the tsunami in the Indian Ocean on December 26, 2004.)
