A +7.0 earthquake about 190 miles off the Northern Cailfornia coast has caused a Tsunami Warning from Mexico to Vancouver. Estimated time to the SF Bay Area would be 2120 local ( now 2100 ). Effected airports I could think of would be Arcata, Eureka, San Francisco, Oakland, and Vancouver. All airports at sea level on the coast. Hope all is well.

Bo airports effected as of yet...this is a really interesting event...what does an airport do in this case? Not enough time to get the planes or people out and to a safe area. NOTE: NO TSUNAMI REPORTED AT THIS TIME!

Hawaii is also under a tsunami warning, but they are stressing that no significant action is expected. I haven't seen anything about the airports being on watch, but then geography tends to favor most of the islands' major airports (perpendicular to wave direction).

Great. I'm going to be stranded here in Nor Cal because SAN will be under water.  boggled

Just got word from KING 5 news here in Seattle that the tsunami warning has been cancelled. Although they did mention there is a possible for smaller local tsunami activity, nothing like the one in Southeast Asia. So looks like us people on the West Coast can sleep easy tonight.

K Montey...all is well. You can have the thread deleted if you'd like....

Montey:By the way, how often do you check the non-av forum? I never do! So if something is related to aviation, like the chance of SFO's red-eyes being in water up to the wings, I think it aviation related and should be in a forum actually being looked at!

No not at all - I didn't suggest it be deleted but I think having two threads on the same topic is annoying.

I always check non-av. However, from other peoples posts in this thread it really had little to do with aviation.

All the same its a good thing you won't be getting any Tsunami's up your way today.  Wink

Were there any diversions or a/c put into a holding patterns during the event?

It is worthy to note that the earthquake could be felt as far Stockton, California, which is ~50-60 miles east of San Francisco.

Trust me, not any more annoying than your discussions on those lengthy and truly pointless A vs B debates, sorry to say  Silly

On the other hand this is an extremely interesting event, a little closer to the coast and it could have been very serious.

I've never started a discussion on A v. B

I'm not disputing that its interesting or not - simply pointing out that:

A) Its got little to do with civil aviation

B) Its already being discussed elsewhere

I've seen threads moved to non-av that have had greater relevance to aviation than this and they weren't double topics.
