Last night there was a massive 7.7 magnitude earthquake that hit 100 miles south of us. Tsunami warnings were broadcast. I live on the beach so I started tracking the wave front.
No news for quite awhile.
Then reports of the first wave hitting an island south of us.
It was a gigantic 42 cm high wave.
We chose to not heed the evacuation warnings. So when the first wave hit town 15 mile south of us, I was monitoring the situation.
The 42 cm wave had dropped by 2/3rds before it hit my town. It was a gigantic 6 inches.
So we survived our brush with doom.....this time.
