“This just in from NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration): a tsunami warning is in effect for the state of Hawaii and Southern and Central California — along with all countries with a Pacific Ocean-facing coastline. The tsunami was generated by a devastating 8.8 earthquake in Central Chile (which has left at least 100 dead) and it could cause damage along coastlines of all west coast countries and all islands in the state of Hawaii. Urgent action should be taken to protect lives and property.”
- This is a widespread warning and watch from Hawaii to the California coastline. It always good to be prepared. A Tsunami is a series of waves generated by earthquakes, underground volcanic activity. It may start as a small wave and increase in size and become faster as it moves a shore.
- Hawaii is taking this warning very seriously (see video below):
I just text messaged and emailed our clients that live along the coastline from Long Beach to San Clemente. Although Long Beach has a breakwater out about 2 miles from shore, that’s why we don’t have high surf here in Long Beach, CA.
