The waves are hitting us right now ( all local stations are showing live the coast ) , but there seems to be strong enough to do harm , or threaten people . Evacuation orders may be canceled within an hour or so . The San Andreas has no effect on the waves in the ocean . And these waves have nothing to do with tides , so call now tsunamis .

This had potential to be bad for the U.S. , but the damage and the impact was less .

The reality is that tsunamis travel slow enough that the U.S. has many hours warning of any problems so far an earthquake . It moves at about the speed of a jetliner . Sounds fast - think. A flight from San Francisco to Tokyo is more than ten hours of flight . That's a lot of time to sound the alarm and get people off the beaches .

Pray for the people of Japan .
