    For those this may affect....

    A massive earthquake off the coast of northern California has triggered a tsunami warning for the west coast states of the USA.

    Hopefully, a tsunami does not happen.

    That was a pretty big ass quake, hopefully there was no vertical shift in the ocean floor.

    Damn clsoe to the coast too. Not much warning time.

    it'll hit san francisco long before it hits me in san diego, but I doubt it'll amount to much of anything other than a high tide

    7.0 out in the ocean for us is just a foot massage. Wasn't big enough to move that much of the ocean all the way down the pacific coast. Will probably see crazy surfers out in numbers tryin ta catch waves.

    :up: Good to hear. Hopefully there won't be any bigger quakes in the works in the days to come. I know earthquakes aren't exactly unusual for those living in CA, it does seem that it wasn't too many days ago that I had posted about a 5.0 earthquake that luckily didn't cause any harm to life either...
