    That's like armageddon-scale.
    It's not referred to the Richter Scale anymore.


    800 X more powerful than Haiti.

    I'm curious how deep the quake was. Not hearing anywhere. I guess I'll have to look it up. The depth of the quake has a direct bearing on the Tsunami.

    Tsunami Advisory for San Francisco, CA

    Excerpted from “Tsunami Advisory for San Francisco, CA” Issued by The National Weather Service, West Coast/Alaska Tsunami Warning Center, AK, 4:54 pm PST, Sat., Feb. 27, 2010
    ... A TSUNAMI ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT WHICH INCLUDES THE COASTAL AREAS OF CALIFORNIA FROM THE CALIFORNIA-MEXICO BORDER TO THE OREGON-CALIFORNIA BORDER...

    PERSONS IN TSUNAMI ADVISORY AREAS SHOULD MOVE OUT OF THE WATER... OFF THE BEACH AND OUT OF HARBORS AND MARINAS.

    TSUNAMI ADVISORIES MEAN THAT A TSUNAMI CAPABLE OF PRODUCING STRONG CURRENTS OR WAVES DANGEROUS TO PERSONS IN OR VERY NEAR WATER IS IMMINENT OF EXPECTED. SIGNIFICANT WIDESPREAD INUNDATION IS NOT EXPECTED FOR AREAS IN AN ADVISORY. TSUNAMIS ARE A SERIES OF WAVES POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS SEVERAL HOURS AFTER INITIAL ARRIVAL TIME. …
    A quarter of the planet and it's people has been directly touched by Chile's tragedy today.

    Those pictures are scary stuff. I can't imagine the fear of living through something like this.

    Chile is no stranger to these strong earthquakes.

    Let's pray for those in the country who are going through this.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24

    I was thinking it seems like we are getting more powerful earthquakes than usual. Either that or I am just being forgetful.

    Yeah, you're just being forgetful. This is nothing new for Chile. There was once a 9 point something earthquake in Alaska.

    Well part of me is glad that I am being forgetful. On the other hand my ability to not remember things at the ripe old age of 21 is kind of scary.
