Earthquake in Chile means danger for Hawaii

Post  Celica on Sat Feb 27, 2010 5:49 pm

So I don't know if some of you may have heard that last night, an 8.8 earthquake shook the continent of Chile (mostly in the capital of Concepcion), which scientists predicted will cause a tsunami (or series of) to affect the islands of Hawaii as well as other surrounding islands.

As of yet on the news, no major tsunami seems to have hit yet, but there is still warning that a possible tsunami may hit at any hour.

At 6:00am this morning the tsunami sirens all over the islands went off, schools, roads and a few airports have been closed.

Right now I am paying attention to the news and hoping that nothing happens. Most of the islands are in a warning state, and on the East side of the island of where I live, the waters are somewhat receding, and the water is being discolored from the stirring of debris.

I am lucky enough that I was not called to go to work today (since I work close to the beach) but as for my father and the rest of the people who actually still have to work today, hopefully nothing major will happen.

I hope for the best.

Unfortunately from the news I heard that 47 people were already confirmed dead, and the number is expected to rise. While the damage there was not as great as what happened in Haiti, it was still a pretty big quake and people still died because of it.

As for me here, yes fortunately I live up on higher ground, but everyone is waiting anxiously (some with anticipation?) to see if a tsunami will actually hit. Also I don't think I'll be called in to work hehe.

My mom brought my dad to work this morning, and my mom kinda got stuck because they closed the roads to drive back up for now, but otherwise I think she will be fine.

Thanks for the concern, I will definitely be looking out and inform you guys of any changes.

Well I said this in guild chat on DoMO but forgot to post it here, the Tsunami warning for Hawaii was canceled early afternoon yesterday, so we got away clean once again. XD

Unfortunately after all that waiting for water, where I live we are getting pounded by heavy rain which is still pretty much like a tsunami to me...rofl.

Also, the death toll still rises in Chile, and things are still pretty bad there, so I hope the best for all the people there.
