what a way to wake up [Feb. 27th, 2010|07:31 am]

Got a call early in the morning canceling/rescheduling an event today....Because there's a tsunami warning. Soon after heard the civil defense sirens. There was a massive earthquake in Chile (8.8!) yesterday and there's supposed to be a tsunami heading this way. Current estimates are that the tsunami height will be pretty low for my island, but some of the other islands may be hit by pretty big waves. What a Saturday...Feels like can't do anything...

ETA: Turned on CNN to get more info on Chile...They aren't providing survey-type info, but the damage looks pretty bad. So far the death toll isn't too high, I hope it stays low.

uwaaah... Please do take care and stay alert!! >_<

I hope the same for Chile too... I read from a report that it's thanks to their building standards, so I really hope not a lot of people are hurt or died.

I thought of you as soon as I heard of the tsunami warning... the news here, now, say that the tsunami warning has been cancelled in Hawaii so at least that's good (my mind can't wrap up around the 8.8 level... that's humongous!... I fear there will be many deaths added to the numbers in the upcoming days. So sad).

Yeah, nothing much happened. It was tiring waiting for the tsunami to reach us and it felt anticlimactic in the end, but gotta feel grateful that it turned out the way it did for us.

It's sad to hear the not unexpected news of the rising numbers out of Chile.
