Tsnuami Watch After Earthquake Hits Haiti

Tsunami watches after earthquake hits Haiti.  A major eartquake in Haiti has caused Tsunami watches to be issued.  According to reports that are surfacing, an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.3 has struck about 10 miles southwest of Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti at about 4:53 PM local time.

Although the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center confirms that there was no widespread tsunami following the earthquake in Haiti, there could be residual or local Tsunamis affecting coasts within 100 kilometers from the epicenter of the earthquake.

“Authorities for the region near the epicenter should be aware of this possibility. Areas further from the epicenter could experience small sea level changes and strong or unusual coastal currents.” Is what the bulletin said.

Because of the earthquake in Haiti, there have been Tsunami watches issued for the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Cuba, and the Bahamas.

Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, and the earthquake is a definite tragedy that anyone would have liked them to avoid.  Our thoughts are with the citizens and visitors in Haiti at the time of the earthquake.

      This is horrible! The area by Port a Prince is so populated and the
      major capitol is so built up with high buildings, it is going to be
      very unlikely that this won’t be a major disaster, Plus the possibility of Tsunamis forming even toward the Fl. Keys coastal area
      is quite a fear right now! We can only pray that this won’t happen to
      any populated coastal, waterway. The Bahamas, Cuba, the Dominican Republic and the Caribbean are all possible locations which can be affected at this time, with an aftershock just occuring with a magnitude of 5.9 coming soon after the quake, and even a bigger quake
      possible to hit later. This is being paraphrased from CNN Television News on air now. God Be with our neighbors in Haiti. Charles in Florida.

      Thanks for enabling me to get new thoughts about desktops. I also contain the belief that certain of the best ways to help keep your mobile computer in primary condition is to use a hard plastic-type case, or maybe shell, which fits over the top of one…
