SEA LEVEL READINGS INDICATE A TSUNAMI WAS GENERATED. IT MAY HAVE

BEEN DESTRUCTIVE ALONG COASTS NEAR THE EARTHQUAKE EPICENTER AND

COULD ALSO BE A THREAT TO MORE DISTANT COASTS. AUTHORITIES SHOULD

TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION IN RESPONSE TO THIS POSSIBILITY. THIS

CENTER WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR SEA LEVEL DATA TO DETERMINE THE

EXTENT AND SEVERITY OF THE THREAT.

FOR ALL AREAS - WHEN NO MAJOR WAVES ARE OBSERVED FOR TWO HOURS

AFTER THE ESTIMATED TIME OF ARRIVAL OR DAMAGING WAVES HAVE NOT

OCCURRED FOR AT LEAST TWO HOURS THEN LOCAL AUTHORITIES CAN ASSUME

THE THREAT IS PASSED. DANGER TO BOATS AND COASTAL STRUCTURES CAN

CONTINUE FOR SEVERAL HOURS DUE TO RAPID CURRENTS. AS LOCAL

CONDITIONS CAN CAUSE A WIDE VARIATION IN TSUNAMI WAVE ACTION THE

ALL CLEAR DETERMINATION MUST BE MADE BY LOCAL AUTHORITIES.

ESTIMATED INITIAL TSUNAMI WAVE ARRIVAL TIMES AT FORECAST POINTS

WITHIN THE WARNING AND WATCH AREAS ARE GIVEN BELOW. ACTUAL

ARRIVAL TIMES MAY DIFFER AND THE INITIAL WAVE MAY NOT BE THE

LARGEST. A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES AND THE TIME BETWEEN

SUCCESSIVE WAVES CAN BE FIVE MINUTES TO ONE HOUR.

8.8!

dam_n that's a huge earthquake.

I've been hearing that there are minor earthquake swarms occurring around the world an they are supposed to peak next week. It also predicted that one of the first ones would be in Japan.

I can't believe they were correct.

Prepare for possibly one hell of a week.

Oh dear...I am so scare for many people who are near by the Center...I thank the Thai Visa for reporting the news so fast. We all have to do the Best for people in Japan. Believe me after Japan I am sure we can map it whatever countries near by. It will happen in anywhere in the world. Recently we heard the news about Tsunami will occure in Reno, Nevada US...shocked me?? ...my take and an opinion.
