At least there isn't a danger of a tsunami. I was ten when the 1964 Alaskan quake that caused a tsunami that destroyed most of our town (Crescent City, CA). Another time I'm thinking 1992 or 1993 I was flying from SFO to ACV when the pilot advised that a major earthquake struck Eureka, he didn't have any information of the status of the airport, but we landed and they left right away. That earthquake caused part of Ferndale to burn to the ground. Nothing funny about an earthquake or a tsunami, hopefully everyone is okay.

Well, there is a notion that the NW coast of the US is due for another Tsunami. Not sure how far inland it would go. I guessing that fault line off the coast is just little to close to shore line of Washington/Oregon to build up strength enough to create a tidal wave big enough to create the kind of devestation seen in the SE Asia traveling towards the coast, but could traveling west towards. I could be wrong, i'm not a seismologist.

Damn, Those poor people down there... One thing I'll say is that atleast It is the tsunami victims (I know it's a terrible way to look at it) but atleast it's the same place that is getting the all the donations from all around the world so not only will it go to helping re-build the destruction from the Tsunami but the Earthquake as well (I can't imagine it's been spent all already)
