It looks like a wave may be headed that way, just wondering if there are any warnings, or alerts. Hopefully all is well.

There are also tsunami warnings for practically the whole east coast of Australia - waves expected in the next half hour or so. There doesn't seem to be any panic... people are being warned to stay away from beaches and to expect some localised beachfront flooding. Tsunami waves have hit NZ and Tahiti, but our news report said they were smaller than expected and no significant damage was done.

Watch this space!

I live very close to Bondi Beach. Nothing to report of yet, but they are saying it could be later than expected....Still feel like a dip in the water today as the weekend weather has been fantastic...

All east coast beaches are rated as dangerous and/or closed.
What a bummer, we were going into Nobbys Beach in Newcastle today.

Just remember that tsunamis come in multiple waves, and the first one is not always the largest. Be careful out there.

About the same as Hawaii. I'm thankful it wasn't worse.
