Earthquakes and Tsunamis

This morning, there was an 8.3 earthquake in the Samoa Islands. Quickly following that, a Tsunami warning was sent out, for Hawaii. My mother and her husband are somewhere in Hawaii (I've no clue where and only knew she was there from 2 comments she left on her facebook comments)I was pretty worried and relieved few hours later to find out that the warning had gone to an advisory.


As it turned out there was a Tsunami. On one of the Samoa Islands. You can read about it here. Tsunami While not so much damage was done as the one a few years ago, damage is apparent, loss of life has occurred and they are expecting another one, bigger than the first. Sad.
