    I woke up to the news at 5am as it invaded my dream. They closed down a Newport Beach school (ten minutes away from me) which, I think says a lot about the tsunami watch. I was always told by my surfer friends that California is immune to tsunamis due to canyons off of our coast which would break a tsunami. It's kind of weird that the news is covering us more than the damage in Japan. What the hell makes us so special? Japan's death count is above 200 already.

    Not to be a doomTard, but I really hope Hollywood, California gets washed away. That's the only place I really want to see destroyed in California. Too bad it's not on the coast...

    That would be 50 miles away from me....I'm not a big fan of Hollywood either. They are also too far from the shore to be affected. Newport Beach is right up the street from me and down the hill which, keeps us safe. icon_lol.gificon_cool.gif

    DOOM SALAD WITH A THOUSAND ISLAND DOOM DRESSING!

    Japan's nuclear power plant is on fire, and it's going to explode. FALL out might reach the west coast of USA due to the jetstream. icon_eek.gif

    I just read this waking up this morning. I read that it's the 5th largest earthquake recorded in history. I feel bad for everyone affected, and those in nearby countries that might be affected.

    SHIT I DONT WANT TO SEE OUR HOMELAND DESTROYED... The wave predictions have now climbed to 8 feet, I have an appointment inland and it's hard wondering what I will come home to.

    Now they are saying what we cannot see could be deathly in one more hour until noon today... I hate when Science defies itself... Our entire west coast is potentially in danger.icon_cry.gif

    Upryte, no need to panic. Most of the West Coast is made up of cliffs. The only thing that might be destroyed or get wet are things down by the water's edge, as even a tsunami wave cannot go against gravity for long. Just listen to the sirens, and if you're in a low lying area, follow the blue tsunami evacuation route signs.

    KATU Portland has been pondering if the tsunami will reach Portland. That's just crazy and amounts to fearmongering, as a tsunami does not have the energy to move 90 miles inland, even if it is only 30 ft above sea level.

    This woman predicted the earthquake based on the alignment of earth and the comet elenin on March 8th! She said it would happen on March 11th-15th! Accurate prediction is accurate.

    Hah, and KATU isn't even the FOX affiliate. Apparently there was nothing to "see" at the coast as the waves arrived during an outgoing tide.

    BTW: I've been doing some water sampling over on the coast over the last few months. The Oregon coast doesn't have much low-lying land, but I'm stunned at how many McMansions have gone up on what little bits that there are in the last couple of decades. There are some of those places that just deserve to be washed away.

    Edit Re: Inland effects. I seem to recall reading that there are some tsunami-caused landforms around Seattle. Even in Lake Washington.

    Are you really serious? No matter how bad it is, there are people living in Hollywood. I don't understand why would anyone wish such thing to happen to people???

    I just don't like everything that Hollywood stands for and the celebrities who push their idealism on the masses. I would like many celebrities to die all at once, as well as the music & movie industry to be abolished. If it could happen all in one day - by a earthquake, fire, or bomb that would give me an instant hard-on. Of course I don't want innocent people to die just the celebrities
    and the industry that makes Hollywood. icon_twisted.gif

    All right...that does it!! You are an ignorant, stupid fool!! A child with no pic... you are a joke, little boy!! I can only guess that you had some idiotic dream of being some kind of celebrity, and was cast away...turned down.


    Lawl, Celebrities are nothing but meat to me. They don't have souls. Anyway..why are you even on here? Whenever I see your photo on here I get the creeps..wondering why an old out of shape faghag is on here? Doesn't look like you've worked out in the past 15+ years.

    I remember a few years ago, when during one of the normal winter storms some of them went over the cliffs they were built on due to erosion. The owners did not have insurance as the insurance companies deemed the homes uninsurable due to the inherent risk. So the owners went to the government for help. I do not remember if they got any, but only fools build their house on sand... they got what they had coming to them.

    I would have been a little leery on Long Beach, WA today... that's one of the few spots where there's no quick way out.

    Mindgarden, do you have any specifics on these tsunami-caused landforms? I study geosciences, and the PacNW is one of my favorite areas in the world (lived there for 13 years after all.)
