Re: Offshore tsunami experience

These two are the ones that really frosts me! Total devastation in less then 10 minutes. Even with a large sea walls in place......

Re: Offshore tsunami experience

[QUOTE=Insequent;1151138]Here is a link to a thread with some interesting info:
Tsunami- Head Out To Sea?

In there is a link to a very moving first hand account:
Living & Learning Aboard the Good Ship Learnativity: Doing the Tsunami Tango in American Samoa: Part I [quote]

I was just about to write his accounting, I know captain Wayne, during dinner he told me what happened. He was pretty happy he had a steel hull, a big honkin engine, and a really redundant filtration system.

Delmarrey, I bet it is one heck of a whirlpool(gulp)

Rubyjean, one night way way out in the Atlantic i was hit in the head by a flying fish. I heard this loud thump thump thump, getting closer and closer, then bop right on my head and bounced right back in the ocean. I almost screamed like a girl( I was a 19 year old girl).
