Everywhere except California, Oregon, Washington State and Vancouver.
An 8.8 magnitude earthquake hit Chile early this morning. So far only 78 deaths have been reported. The earthquake in Haiti this past January was a magnitude 7.0 but they sustained considerably more casualties.
Tsunami warnings have been issued for all over the globe with considerable concern for the Hawaiian Islands. Evacuations have been ordered for later this afternoon.
Um, where is everyone supposed to evacuate to?
On a side note:
Proof that Google’s method of advertising has penetrated the real world. As I am watching the news about the tsunami warnings in Hawaii a commercial airs for Papa Murphy Pizza highlighting their Hawaiian pizza.
