Tsunami Travel Time Maps
A 7.3 magnitude earthquake hit the Loyalty Islands this morning but no tsunami warning was issued but PTWC was nice enough to make this Tsunami Travel Time Map for us. This will give you a fair idea of how much time it would take to travel to Hawaii and the Pacific coast if this had really produced a tsunami. I was here in Honolulu when the last hit here in Feb.28th 2010 and that one was caused by a earthquake in Chile and gave us 16 hours to get ready and prepare. I am just basically posting this a referance and based on a actual event. Based on the location of this earthquake,we would of had about 6-9 hours to prepare which is plenty of time in my opinion based on my own personal experience. People here take this very seriously here but yet show a lot of aloha to people they don't even know when something like this does happen. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else during such an event.
