Thanks for the heads up Grant/Dene.


Since when are waves a "up to ameter higher" a tsunami though?
Stuff being sensationalist here I think :lol:

Neil, they may be only a metre high but are backed by kilometres of water pressure and travelling at speeds up to 1000 km/hr, many many times that of a wind wave. You would not even notice it in the ocean. As they reach shallow water, the friction slows the front of the wave and the rear catches up and piles on top - that one metre wave can reach potentially many tens of metres high when it actually hits - and the back surge from the pressure behind it can sweep it many miles inland.

That said, the earthquakes in Chile tend not to affect us like that, but potentially they can and the question is, do you take the punt? You will probably only get it wrong once.
