Everyone lines up along the beach to watch.

You get the hell inland, of course!

Yea, but like how far inland, how much time does a person have to get far enough away, etc.

We'll have to see what SDSIChero says, but it looks like about 5 hours?

I know a lot of work has been done to more effectively track tsunami in recent years.

I don't think Hawaii has had one like this in a long time, though.

News is reporting that there may be a 12 foot wave... Of course tsunami waves are different from normal waves...

I'm pretty sure there are some dumb asses who would do that.

They advise heading for higher ground (even for the hotels along waikiki beach, they say go to higher floors). Here's a map of O'ahu (where I am) and the expected areas of where the tsunami might go:

http://www.pdc.org/DisasterInfo/Tsunami/OahuEvacMaps.html

We are supposed to have 7 days of life with us.

The bummer part is that the north part of our island is pretty damn flat and very country (one road in and out) so they gotta get out of there and head toward town I think.

It will hit the big island (confusingly called Hawaii) first...

It passed the Galapagos too.

Damn, they said the sirens did not work in several place. We are totally not prepared here. :roll:

Well, best wishes to everyone there.

Turns out Easter Island may not have been hit yet, I was listening to international radio and it's hard to understand sometimes.

EDIT: May have now, though.
