Most of these are not showing up where I work. But I'll be looking at them all when I get home.

Really makes you wonder how far this recent flurry of activity over there the last couple years will go. 8.9 Magnitude and tidal waves across the Pacific to the America'*.

well just saw a toyota dealership putting up a sign that said vehicles cannot be ordered and parts for the prius are delayed indefinitely!

sure sucks glad i'm not in Korea right now they were saying that part of it was supposed to come over here but doesn't seem like it would be nearly as bad of a wave for us. and brings to mind the question that how come when cali gets rocked by a quake don't we send out a wall of water everywhere?

Different type of earth quake. That was a mega thrust. Here we have slip faults.
