    Many countries on the Pacific Rim now have a tsunami warning, including countries as far away as Chile and Peru.

    I can't tell you how happy I am to be at 2,300 plus feet above sea level here. They are saying the Tsunami that hit was 13 feet wich means it would go higher with the force of the water.

    The pictures of the damage show it to be devastating on a major scale. The fires and people who are stranded in the upper floors of houses and other buildings hoping to be rescued is frightening, and it is going to take hourds if not days to get to them.

    Hawaii is expected to be hit about 3:59 AM Hawaii time by the Tsunami. With all the fires they can't get to the devastation will only get worse.

    Any one living on the Coast of the Pacific Ocean need to be called to warn them of what may be coming so they can move inland to save their lives. This is no joke they may be at risk.

    If you know people who live in these areas you need to call them and warn them because this is a real threat to them. Don't rely on email because it's near midnight and they are likely in bed, so call them now and alert them now.

    Better be safe than sorry. They ma give you a bad time for wakng them but if the Tdunami hits they will thank you later.

    There are several waves coming becaue ot the aftershocks that top 7.0 so this is a serious threat.

    re: 8.9 earthquake strikes near Tokyo - Tsunami alert issued

    Japan is no stranger to earthquakes. I have colleagues there who are already in contact and they say that people had a very disciplined response. The level of damage remains to be seen though.

    I don't appreciate the way the media is sensationalising the dangers of the oncoming tsunamis with fear mongering and dramatic interpretation. The danger is real but the best thing we can do is stay calm and let the preparedness plans kick in to get people to safety zones.

    I swear, people are loving this drama way too much.

    FYI you can view the status of the tsunamis here:

    Most distant places like Hawaii have been downgraded to low-moderate severity. No need to panic.

    Fortunately both of the people I know who are currently in the Tokyo area have said they're OK.

    I disagree, this isn't a random shark attack or an outrageous Charlie Sheen quote, it's an imminent disaster for many countries all across the Pacific Rim. The more sensationalizing, the better.

    That's not what I mean. People flocking here to say "ZOMMGGGG STUFF UNDERWATER!" and "HAWAII IS IN IMMINENT DANGER OMG!" is not helping anything. Let the authorities do their jobs and wait for the official statements. The sensationalism about it is stupid and disrespectful.

    The sky isn't falling. **** happens. Let's wait for more info. I realize Americans enjoy dramatic destruction because it gives them something to watch on t.v. but let's give it a rest.
