Earthquake in Atlantic poses no threat to Hawaii?

How is this news? Even in Hawaii? (for those that don't know - Hawaii is in the Pacific (or was the last time I checked)).


6.4 Mid-Atlantic Ridge Earthquake, No Tsunami Threat to Hawaiʻi

Golly! Really!! And it took how much education to figure that out?

Is this a joke or what? That would be like saying a warehouse fire in New York poses no threat to Los Angles!!

Isn't is possible for a tsunami wave to ricochet around the planet? hitting one land mass then rebounding off in another direction?

To make its way from the Atlantic via richochets to

Hawaii it would probably have to be 5 miles tall at its origin point to be an inch high by the time it got to Hawaii.

Look at a world map. I'd like to see that go through the Panama Canal.

The Atlantic is almost landlocked and then ice locked where there isn't land.

I know Florida would definitely suck that day though. Then again, might be a two for price of one when you start your vacation in Boca Raton and finish it in Cancun.


true true ;)

Sometimes a man just wants

to become another species.

Maybe devolve, to a much smarter Capuchin monkey or something.
