JohnRPollard Wow.

Glad to hear the folks in the path of the tsunami wave fared okay. You guys are cool cats. After seeing images/footage of the Indonesian tsunami a few years back, I'd be pretty anxious riding it out in any harbor within the predicted path.

That said, it must have been fascinating to watch up-close, first hand. Any footage? Or were the effects too gradual to capture on anything but time lapse?

Also, while it's good news the destructive tsunami didn't materialize, as Joe says let's not forget the folks in Chile. 8.8 !! I can't begin to imagine what that must have felt like.

mccary It is GREAT news that no one experienced any devastating waves. If only the people of Chile were as fortunate.

It was weird.

imagine2frolic The good news is that the wave was small. What's even better news is the system can work, and most likely save lives when there is time for a warning........i2f
