Been watchin' it since early this AM... horrible. And the Big Wave possibility is still to show up across the Pacific. :shocked:

That's huge, 8.8 is a whopper.

Many people will be hurt or killed in this one.

I hope not, but . . .

I heard 500 times as much energy as the one that hit Haiti. But they don't expect as high a death toll because the buildings are better constructed.

It's just a matter of time before we get hit again.
