The U.S. west coast should be fine as long as the San Andreas doesn't give. I would be more concerned for Hawaii at this point. Certainly a devastating event, though that is guaranteed to happen on the ring of fire... I am sure this will create more work for me =/ I am a geophysicist, I'll probably be asked to map it tomorrow...

I hope Honolulu doesn't get hit too hard =/ Went to school there.

Ring of fire has been alot more active these past 7 years

I have worried about California for a while ,, It is overdue for a big one on San Andreas isn't it?

Very much overdue. It is actually a couple hundred years overdue. Some people are wagering it will happen in the next 5 years, but that is more speculation than science. When it does though, it will be stronger than the one that hit Japan today, at least...

Yeah I keep hearing the big one will strike, but how do scientist know the size of an earthquake will strike in the near future?

Well, the best they can do is estimate, but there are many signs and measurements that can be made to show the damage a rupture might cause. Things are constantly moving and changing through subduction and convergence zones, there are patterns, and precise measurements made with the fault's slip. San Andreas has slipped 7 meters since it's last big quake, the pressure is building, but we won't know exactly till it hits, the only guarantee is that it is inevitable, imminent, and it won't be anything lower than an 7.8 (the Northridge Quake was 6.7), with many estimating that it could reach the upper 9's. What makes it so deadly is it's vicinity to densely urban and developed areas, and the fact that it is so large. The population of California alone along with the fact that the whole state is going to be on it's head when it hits... The casualty and damage estimates are staggering.

That video looks when you turn on the hose and the water is first pushing all the debris down the gutter... It's surreal.

Reality check.
Zad, you're obviously a smart guy, but you aren't suggesting that California will break off into the ocean are you? That is simply not true.

Perhaps you mean that you will be swept away by a Tsunami, but its amazing how many people actually think a chunk of land is going to break off at the San Andreas Fault.

Japan declares 'nuclear emergency' as attempts to cool reactor at northern plant are 'not going as planned'

Yeah, good luck to you. Let us know when everything seems to be OK from your end. I'm sure that will take awhile though.

The first projected Tsunami waves are supposed to hit Hawaii in less than 2 hours. Reports from Midway Island are that waves are about 4 feet high there.

The nuclear reactor that was having problems is being reported as on its way to normal functionality.

I remember Seal Beach being the landing point for a tsunami in the early 70's ( i think). We watched a film about it in school. Nothing much happened but the idea of it happening is pretty alarming.

I know that the potential for a tsunami hitting you guys is being taken seriously enough to where one of my family member who still lives in the area got the early call for them to take the fire boat out of the harbor as a safety precaution.

My thoughts and prayers will be with you and the people of japan.

Bravo 1?

Just curious if the status is the same in all branches of the military.

Wow, that is a big machine to move around as a precaution. If anyone lives in or around the harbor(s) they should check and see what the Coast Guard boats are doing. They have a hole protocol on how to respond to these types of things and are always an exceptional source for info.
