A CNN news feed sent me this overnight:

Sirens blaring across parts of Hawaii urged residents to seek higher ground, as a tsunami -- triggered by a sizable 7.7-magnitude earthquake in western Canada -- headed toward them.

Waves between 3 and 7 feet are expected to lash the islands, beginning about 10:28 p.m. local time Saturday (4:28 a.m. Sunday ET), the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.

"Basically this tsunami is pointed right at us," said Gerard Fryer, senior geophysicist at the center.

The impact could last for hours.



I love this part: "Waves between 3 and 7 feet are expected to lash the islands..."

Break out the boogie boards.

    Sister who lives on the Big Island reported "ankle slappers" ... waves one point six feet (1.6'). How do you even measure that in a place where the waves are often thirty feet?
