Update:
It seems the tsunami watch has been canceled, but it's still advisable to stay aware of your surroundings just in case.

Following a magnitude 8.1 earthquake off the southeast coast of Alaska, a severe tsunami warning has been issued for the entire US west coast, as well as parts of Alaska and Canada. With the US Tsunami Warning site - tsunami.gov under heavy load, please be cautious and remain vigilant should you be in the affected areas. While this isn't gaming news, we understand a large part of our userbase lives in the US, and a threat of this scale should not be taken lightly. Stay safe.

From what I understand, most the tsunami went out to sea, but there's not much information yet. Hope my information is correct.

The entire west coast, Alaska and Canada? Wow...that sounds pretty heavy. :blink:


My local news source mentions the quake in Alaska, but seeing how we're almost at the other end of the globe, I can't fault them for not keeping up with the latest alerts.

In any case: be safe out there, everyone.




*pardon my ignorance, but...isn't the coast of Alaska part of the US West coast? :unsure:

Erm...shouldn't that guy in the sign be running AWAY from the giant wave rather than attempting to dive in? :unsure:

rsoe website has this information :
2 hours ago. ATWC January 23 2018 09:31 AM Tsunami Warning 175 miles SE of Kodiak City, Alaska 8.0 20 Tsunami not observed!
49 minutes ago.PTWC January 23 2018 11:10 AM Tsunami Watch Cancellation 367 km N of Chiniak,Alaska,United States 7.9 0 Tsunami not observed!

note sure how long it would take to reach the coast, nor if the warning is really canceled.
there were a lot of smaller earthquake in the same area (mag4-5), it's maybe still active but likely to decrease.

Tickets are NOT an option: many people probably will stay near home and won't move to anywhere, plus it was announced that WC. COULD get tsunami, not 100%....

    @Psionic Roshambo, The disc drive wasn't meant to be a cup holder to begin with. It does look like the place to put a cup on top because the tray has a circular outline.

    So using your hard drive bays as a place to store your illegal drugs is not the best idea.
