Tsunami kills 5 in Robinson Crusoe islands

Posted 35 minutes ago

The tsunami unleashed by a massive 8.8 magnitude quake off Chile has killed five people and left 11 others missing on the remote Robinson Crusoe islands.

Chilean President Michelle Bachelet sent two aid ships, two helicopters and a plane to the small archipelago of some 600 inhabitants more than 700 kilometres offshore in the Pacific Ocean.

The casualties were confirmed by Ivan de la Masa, the governor of Valparaiso, the nearest city on the Chilean mainland.

A huge wave measuring 2.34 metres crashed onto the Chilean coastal town of Talcahuano just after the quake struck.

The quake has left at least 214 people dead, though officials warned the toll could rise.

A team of French marine archaeologists working in the archipelago on the wreck of a Spanish galleon could not immediately be reached despite several attempts to contact them.

Their leader Arnaud Cazenave de la Roche spoke by telephone to AFP earlier this week.

The Robinson Crusoe islands get their name from the hero of Daniel Defoe's novel, whose adventures were based on those of Alexander Selkirk, a Scottish sailor marooned there in real life by his captain in 1704.

Quake-triggered tsunami rushes ashore in Hawaii

HONOLULU, Hawaii — A tsunami triggered by the Chilean earthquake sent a surge of water ashore in Hawaii, California and islands in the South Pacific on Saturday as the waves continued onto Alaska and parts of Asia.

There were no immediate reports of widespread damage, injuries or deaths in the U.S. or in the Pacific islands, but a tsunami that swamped a village on an island off Chile killed at least five people and left 11 missing.

In Hawaii, water began pulling away from shore off Hilo Bay on the Big Island just before noon, exposing reefs and sending dark streaks of muddy, sandy water offshore. Waves later washed over Coconut Island, a small park off Hilo's coast.

The tsunami was causing a series of surges that were about 20 minutes apart, and the waves arrived later and smaller than originally predicted. The highest wave at Hilo measured 5.5 feet (1.7 meters) high, while Maui saw some as high as 2 meters (6.5 feet).

Scientists cautioned the waves would continue into the afternoon.

Somebody just tweeted that the tsunami warning for Hawaii has been cancelled. Good news if it is true!

What about the aftershocks TFG? I wonder if a strong aftershock could possibly trigger another tsunami.
