Tsunami

The PTWC is currently under heavy demand, and it is best to put their link into your feedreader, and keep abreast of developments that way. Waves of 5 feet in height have washed ashore in nearby islands at intervals of 8 minutes (which can be up to 1 hours apart). Over the next 5 to 6 hours, waves are expected to propagate across the Pacific. Warnings and watches remain in force until further notice.

  1. They are even warning of high tides on the coasts of Washington, Oregon & California. My heart goes out to the people in those countries. I have several friends here that have family in American Samoa...I need to give them a call. Linda in Washington.....gosh I love your header picture!
