Unhappy Tsunami watch!

Yes, you've heard it here, now. Turn on fox, Japan just had an 8.8 earthquake and was hit by 2 tsunamis. Here there's a tsunami watch, and if one does hit it'll be in 3-4 hours. Luckily I live pretty far inland (at least 10 mles XD) So yeah I'm safe from it. I'm a bit nervous though, I have a huge fear of tsunamies it is what I'm MOST afraid of. Every once in awhile I just get terrified thinking about them.... according to my dad it'll be a tiny 20 foot one that wont make it past the beach. Sure hope so... and all on the night before I fly away!

Luckily we are far from danger zones. Now my family is joking about how "I wonder if those electric people are still protesting" (Hawaii and all its quirks XD) so the mood has luckily gotten lighter. Still worried my flight might be canceled, the airport is on the shore (Though it's on the opposite shore of where the wave will initially hit)

I'm just very paranoid, and after watching Japan get hit and the wave probably traveling miles inland because it is super flat there, just kind of scary /= According to the news people it'll be around 20 or less feet. I live 75 feet above see level... so yeah. Might fall asleep soon.
