tsunami after earthquake outside canada

Recommended Posts

Sandy has been a little disappointing for this hurricane veteran. The way they hyped it in the news around here you would've thought it was the storm of the century. "Frankenstorm" they called it.

So far...a steady drizzle and the odd 25 mph gust. Look out!

Update:

A tsunami triggered by a 7.7 magnitude earthquake thousands of miles away in Canada has hit the island chain of Hawaii, without causing major damage.

Good news...for once! :)

Just spoke with my father who is in northern Virginia, near where Sandy is making landfall right now. He said it's not so bad where he's at, but he's sure that some areas near the water are under a couple feet.

At least 15 people are reported dead across several US states.

They include:

...two parents killed by a falling tree when they got out of their car; their children, 11 and 14, who remained inside, survived

At least six million homes and businesses are without power. In all, about 50 million people could be affected by the storm, with up to a million ordered to evacuate their homes.

New York/Jersey are so vulnerable to such an event. Sad.

Sandy, now downgraded from a hurricane but described as a "super-storm", is churning north and heading for Canada.

Stay safe, neighbors! :calim:
