Tsunami warning

Following an 8.8 earthquake in Chile, we awoke to tsunami warnigns this morning. Jimmy, from s/v SeaLevel, walked through the marina to get the word out and it’s been broadcast on the net.

The current projections from NOAA look like we will probably be fine, although we’re keeping an eye on developments.

On the other hand, I really fear for the impact to Pacific islands, and hope they’ll be fine.

    Hope you all stay safe. My step-dad is in Chile (no word yet) and dad in Hawaii (though high and dry at 700 ft). This is chaos for our family!
