More Tsunamis Coming?!

Tue Mar 29, 2005 3:09 am

On cnn.com site they just posted breaking news of another earthquake on the same fault line that caused the huge tsunami. This one registered at 8.2. No word yet about tsunamis, but I was wondering if people get enough heads up, will they just begin evacuating people using the planes that are on some of the islands? Have the airports down there been repaired yet from the tsunami? Can they handle another?

I hope and pray that this doesn't turn into another deadly tsunami event.

I hope and pray also that we don't see a repeat of what happened in December.

Unfortunatley, some experts say that it will happen at some place some time in the near future.

"There is a potential for some wave activity," said Julie Martinez

This quote is from the cnn.com article. The person makes it sound like the waves are nothing more then a good set for surfing. Doesn't make it sound at all like the wave(s) could actually do any damage. Of course, everyone knows that isn't true.
