...THIS TSUNAMI INFORMATION BULLETIN IS FOR ALASKA - BRITISH
COLUMBIA - WASHINGTON - OREGON AND CALIFORNIA ONLY...

NO - REPEAT NO - WATCH OR WARNING IS IN EFFECT.

EARTHQUAKE DATA
PRELIMINARY MAGNITUDE - 6.9
LOCATION - 5.5N 123.4E - MINDANAO, PHILIPPINE ISLANDS
TIME - 0323 AST 02/05/2005
0423 PST 02/05/2005
1223 UTC 02/05/2005

EVALUATION
BASED ON LOCATION AND MAGNITUDE THE EARTHQUAKE WAS NOT
SUFFICIENT TO GENERATE A TSUNAMI DAMAGING TO CALIFORNIA -
OREGON - WASHINGTON - BRITISH COLUMBIA OR ALASKA. SOME AREAS MAY
EXPERIENCE SMALL SEA LEVEL CHANGES. IN AREAS OF INTENSE
SHAKING LOCALLY GENERATED TSUNAMIS CAN BE TRIGGERED BY SLUMPING.


...looks like we're fine. Nothing on CNN yet, I wonder when it'll hit Brunei etc?

no the last one was a 9.0
each magnitude being twice as power ful the 9.0 would be 4 times more powerful, not that this is anything to be sneezed at

I was under the impression that each unit of magnitude represented ten times the power - ie, a 7.0 is ten times as strong as a 6.0.

I could be wrong, and can't be assed to google right now.

Hmmm if we were to be hit with a tsunami, would serious damage only occur at the coastlines? Then flooding further in?
