Christchurch’s Tsunami

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii issued a warning that a tsunami had been generated as a result of the Christchurch quake, but the warning was dropped around an hour after it was given even though an tsunami had indeed been created. The reason for the cancellation was that fact that is was “some tsunami”. It was later reported that the waves, more like ripples, were about a “terrifying” eight inches (twenty centimeters) tall.

The Pacific warning center was not the only one issuing warnings. The Joint Australian Tsunami Warning Center also sent an alert for eastern Austrialia which was also canceled.
