Third Tsunami Watch Issued Within 24 Hours

Central America is continuing to experience some very large earthquakes.

After my last post merely hours ago, another tsunami watch has gone out – the third in 24 hours.

Latest Quakes

  1. 5.0  Visokoi Island (South Atlantic/Antarctica)
  2. 5.6  Papua New Guinea (Solomon Islands)
  3. 6.6 Nandaime, Nicaragua (on-ground)

Tsunami Watch

Luckily, a tsunami was not generated from this quake, primarily because the 6.6 quake occurred on the land, but high waves will be generated within the Pacific.

With the number of large quakes taking place within such a short time span, Hawaii, the Galapagos, and many Pacific Islands should expect high waves, strong rip currents, and some flooding.
