Yes, that LA affiliate (the one I'm also watching) seems to fail so much.  <_<

The Tsunami Warning for Hawaii has been canceled. They really dodged a bullet!

Hawaii had around 3 ft but Chile saw much higher. Though these waves were small they are quite powerful

Let me break this down for you:

Guys, calm down. I made that post because I wanted to see some local forecasts, not coverage of an earthquake that is clear across the equator.
You do realize we live in a global society? What happens halfway around the world affects everyone else in the world in some way, shape, or form. Local forecasts aren't the most important thing in the world, and I for one enjoyed TWC's coverage, as it was very informative.



but I don't know anyone who has ever been to Chile or plans to, nor do I have any relations whatsoever to anyone in that country.
Me either, however, the earthquake did produce a tsunami that threatened millions of US citizens (entire Pacific coast, Alaska, and Hawaii, where I have family).

And Aaron, you have digital cable now right? If so, I'm sure your NBC affiliate has set up an NBC Plus weather channel (which I'm sure uses TWC's forecasts).
Weatherplus ceased operations in 2008.

You couldn't have said it better myself. This is the world we live in today. We need to know how to deal and control with these kind of events. A tsunami/earthquake is a very serious event. Many of the world's populations (including myself) live directly on coastline. Tsunamis can be rare but pose a serious threat to these places and yet you could care less?

 For the last time, if you don't like hearing about this stuff, turn off the TV!!! :angry:

And another thing, deleting your posts doesn't help when I can read them in a quote. ;)
