How long does it take for a tsunami to hit after an earthquake, if it's going to?

I guess it depends on the distance to the shore. This one hit near land but it's going to take some time to get some reports from that area.

Here is some data on the speed of the last big one.

How long before someone blames this on Obama's being the antichrist, and this is a sign of the end times?

Okay, maybe not. You're clear.


cpttripps: How long does it take for a tsunami to hit after an earthquake, if it's going to?


From Wikipedia page on the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami
^:
"In deep ocean water, tsunami waves form only a small hump, barely noticeable and harmless, which generally travels at a very high speed of 500 to 1,000 km/h (310 to 620 mph); in shallow water near coastlines, a tsunami slows down to only tens of kilometres an hour but in doing so forms large destructive waves."

I did not know that.

Crap... my aunt and uncle are in Jakarta because my uncle works for USAID. Looking at the map, they definitely weren't too far from the epicenter.

Can't blame Obama yet- he isn't officially in. It is Bush's fault.

What happened to the "on top of shiat" fark I used to know? Where I found out Carlin died 30 minutes before CNN.com picked the story up?

I'm pretty sure the End Times are coming. Keep your eye out for a giant asteroid hitting the planet soon.

Economically speaking, this is positive for the economy. It converts savings to spending

Don't bet on it. Bush will will give them a blank check until he is out of office. 25B to help out an American auto maker, no way. 25B for Indonesia, no problem. Wait and see, he'll do it.

When has Bush ever had a problem with unlimited foreign spending? Domestic spending is what he has a problem with.

The BIG tsunami that hit much of the Indian Ocean rim was caused by an incredible 9.0+, undersea quake. I simply cannot imagine the devastation that a quake of this magnitude would have caused had it been land-based.
