0.5 ft tsunami in BC. Doesn't sound that bad, though I have no concept of how different a 1/2 foot tsunami wave is from a regular one.

The information above was included in a message that stated that the tsunami advisory had been increased to include Oregon and northern California. Why, would you widen the advisory area when you're getting data like 0.2ft in Seattle?

BTW, if you live aboard and don't yet have your phone set up for tsunami alerts from NOAA or the Canadian equivalent, you might want to think about doing so.

G'night all!
