The NOAA tide gauge at Kwajalein, Marshall Islands shows only about a 2 foot 
maximum tsunami wave height above the tide level at the time.


To look at other NOAA tide gauges, choose from the list at 


When you get to the page for a location, set the starting date at March 11, and 
click on the right for an expanded view.  You can essentially watch any of the 
tide gauges in near real time, just hit your browser's reload button when you 
want to see what has happened in the last few minutes.  You can watch a tsunami 
as it happens at any of the NOAA tide gauge locations, with more accuracy than 
you can see looking out your window at the actual water level at the same 
location (one gauge is at our office here in Pago Pago harbor, American Samoa, 
so I can do that).  Cool.

Although we in American Samoa did not get big waves, the waves continued for 

There are news reports that the tsunami killed thousands of seabirds on Midway 
in the northwestern Hawaiian Islands, by sweeping over parts of the low lying 
atoll islands.

Figures on Global Climate Show 2010 Tied 2005 as the Hottest Year on Record

"New government figures for the global climate show that 2010 was the wettest 
year in the historical record, and it tied 2005 as the hottest year since 
record-keeping began in 1880.  It was the 34th year running that global 
temperatures have been above the 20th-century average; the last below-average 
year was 1976. The new figures show that 9 of the 10 warmest years on record 
have occurred since the beginning of 2001."

Dean, I enjoyed you photos from  the Marshall Islands. Do you or 
anyone know how the Marshall Islands such as Enewetak and Kwajalein 
fared in the tsunami? They are all very low islands and I suspect 
large waves washed over most of the islands. They are, as you know, 
closer to the epicenter than Hawaii. Anyone have any information? Gene
