Big Earthquake/Tsunami Again!

Before I get to everything else [and I will!] I want to discuss the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that just hit: [Information Courtesy of USGS]

That's a biggie, Campers. And a tsunami is more than likely going to follow which will hit the Fiji Islands and New Zealand eventually.

Here we go again.

I say this because multiple tremors were recorded in that area [one right after another a la Sumatra] just last week.

Hooo boy! My prayers are with everyone affected by the quake and the subsequent tsunami.
