I am not familiar with FB apps or with Police FB pages but is it usual for police to add thumbs up and tearful emojis to emergency warnings?

 

It's just part of the standard Facebook infrastructure.

That doesn't appear to be an effective evacuation.

This guy has - live stream from the shore. Some guy has pointed his camera at the blackness and is watching the water. Occasionally he sticks a star-sight in front of his camera.

What do you want? A brass band? :) I think that video was taken within 5 or 10 minutes of the sirens going off so looks pretty effective all things considered.

 

Looks like stuck in traffic. If practical, I think I'd be scrabbling up the nearest hill in my goosedown jacket, if there was a hill nearby. Looks like that road is by the water and there are hills

"Sorry, that page doesn't exist!"

That'll teach them to hang about waiting for a tsunami.

According to the So-Called BBC radio this afternoon they were trying to justify the alert and everyone having to dash for high ground by saying that although the tsunami hadn't materialised someone on a boat at sea had noticed (what they had apparently calculated) a 32 foot swell after the quake.   I expect it must be possible to calculate that as precisely at sea.

I don't think that's all that unusual and it would normally end up on a beach with just a few waves.

Very good and a cheerful chappie.  Not exactly true wigwam living though and likely not bothered by petty planners there in Alaska.

Good luck to him. 

It's a thought for those sick and tired of tiny home living amongst the petty bureaucrats and government penny pinchers in Britain.
