I heard about this too on the local 6 o'clock news. They said that it was most likely to have an associated tsunami due to the shallowness of the earthquake.

Smile Thanks!!

Thanks, guys. My other hobby, besides cooking, is volcanoes, geology, and earthquakes. They just fascinate me. If I had not got interested in Forestry I probably would have been a geologist.
