      In Chili, but now there is a Tsunami heading for Hawaii. I don't know.  Kirstie Allie and Pres. Obama are sending warning tweets out about it.

          Its all over the news, and there are warning systems in place.  Its the more remote locations, like Pacific islands that don't have a lot of "modern technologies" that are at the worst risk at the moment.  From what I've read, there is more warning than usual for this one, so people will have time to get to a safe location... but its harder to warn those that don't have tv, phone and a lot of the modern luxuries we take for granted.

    It's on the news...and I just saw it on CNN.com.

    I guess it was an 8.8 magnitude earthquake in Chili.

    There is a warning for the following states I had seen it on the news this morning but like RK Henry said it is headed toward Hawaii.

      States as follows:

      British Columbia

      If I missed any please add, this was on our news they also said that they Tsunami was supposed to arrived at appr. 2:19pm West Coast time that is frightening for so many I hope all will be o.k.
