Dont' get me wrong, an 8.9 EQ (first reported as an 7.9 then 8.5) is horrific but the structural damange wasn't bad. Then when the Tsunami's started to hit and I was watching as a tidal wave swept cars away that were driving down the road and had no idea what was coming. That was a jawdropper for sure. Then I started thinking about the Tsunami's hitting California. None of the local news media grabbed on to that possibility and when I woke up the warnings were here. Saw some boats in a harbor in Santa Cruz getting tossed around.
I coudln't helpt but think how unprepared I am for any sort of major disaster. I might need to put something together because something like this is almost bound to happen in California in our lifetime. Might as well be prepared for it.
It's only a matter of time. The problem California will have is if a Tsunami hit idiots will be driving towards the wave rather than from it so they can look with that blank stare of Darwinism into the TV camera.
