RE: We all Survived the Tsunami 2012

In my opinion it might be a wise idea for Mr. Kiffer to travel to Lituya Bay before down playing a Tsunami alert, to see how a large wave can give a haircut to a mountain.

I have been in alerts in Kodiak, Bristol Bay and Metlakatla, and even though there has only been small waves, every time there is an alert, my mind jumps to the flash photo taken at Lituya.

Maybe we could even send some of our refuge to Japan in exchange for theirs.
