      I am from New Zealand, and the Tsunamai warning you speak of was ranked down as low as some of my really bad Hubs, suffice to say it didn't happen, but it appears to be coming from the skies it hasn't stopped raining all morning I am one Kiwi that is totally over it.

    Scary stuff Ms Chievous.  I'm glad you posted this.  I will definitely send any spare good Karma I have that way, and check back here for updates. Hopefully some of our friends will check in and let us know how they are.

    The tsunami is heading for part of NZ but a warning went out in good time and people have been evacuated.  Australia isn't expecting anything.

      Bumble town never gets tsunamais, it is a happy place free of such autocities. I haven't a clue where the Hell it is but Pearldiver loves it.

    Samoa was hit worst and most of the damage continued under the sea ,the Pacific is huge.

    By the time it reached New Zealand the warning like Mandy said had been downsized ,swells to 1m off the East Coast...

    I emailed my son soon as I read this post , bless ya for posting smile and he emailed me right back and grizzled he still wasnt allowed the day off work ,grrrr ..kids .

    Anyway thankyou for posting , I threw it on facebook earlier in case someone missed it on TV.
