    Not just for Hawaii but also a warning has gone out to Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.

    I have just been reading this on the BBC website, i hope it is not too severe.

    CNN's reporting 78 deaths at the least... And this is only a few hours after it's happened, death toll will probably reach into the hundred's...
    And a Tsunami warning aswell...

    YES!
    Finally we have electricity back up!
    If you couldn't tell by my flag, I'm from Chile!
    It was...
    horrible.
    Probably the worst thing that I've experienced...
    My mom woke me up at 3:35 and a few second afterwards it started, it was pretty "normal" at first but then it felt like the floor was tearing up sideways, like, a part going left and the other one to the right...
    Then everything started falling, bottles, cups, glasses... pretty much everything you can imagine.
    (Fortunately none of my consoles were damaged)
    Afterwards some relatives came to stay with us just in case...
    Then we had to clean up all the mess, now I'm watching the news, and while I was terrified, there's people in even worse conditions!

    Sad, indeed!

    I am not surprise because I read the bible a long time ago warned about the future and see whats happening ? Its true. I knew that it will happen to our hometown, your hometown and it is going to be everywhere. Flooding, tsunami, greater hurricane, greater droughts, foods shortage, waters shortage, and many more. CRAZY, man!

    I'm going to have to blame this on the combination of George Bush and global warming.

    I'm not surprised either; same reason. Hope it doesn't get too severe too though.

    Pliskron, you mind removing that? This is an actual event that caused actual people to die.

    Issac Newton knew our days were numbered and the world will end in 2060.

    Anyway this is only the beginning of the diasters caused by global warming and severe environmental shifts.
