Tsunami Watch

An 8.9 quake in Japan has spawned tsunami warnings for Hawaii and the entire Pacific coast of the US. Be safe if you’re in one of these areas at the moment and get to higher ground or move inland (“thanks Captain Obvious!”).

Meanwhile, beaches are being closed in California. In Hawaii, hotels are moving guests to higher floors. Hopefully these areas can somehow dodge the bullet.

Update: President Obama wins the “poor choice of words of the day” award for this.
