Has Anyone Heard From Allan Main?

Just watching the news of the massive earthquake in Chile and hoping someone had heard from Kiwi and that he's okay. I've e-mailed him but his service may be disrupted. Any of his other friends out there had any contact with him??? Any of the mods in touch with him???

Al

I would think he's ok, Antofagasta is listed as his flying field and that shows about 1000 miles from the quake.

I have two relatives working down there that are much closer, one in Santiago 200 miles and another in La Serena about 400 miles away.

Re: Has Anyone Heard From Allan Main?

I'm sure Kiwi will be fine where he is. There is a Tsunami scheduled to come into San Diego around 11:45 today. Normally I would just watch it from my back yard, but it is raining today, and visibility is not too good. I'm going down closer to the beach to have a better look. It's only expected to be about 6 feet high, and I'll be at about 40 feet so it should be OK. I'm a Geologist by training, and this is a phenomenon I've always wanted to see. I've been in big earthquakes, Hurricanes, seen tornadoes, volcanoes erupting. Now hopefully at least a little Tsunami. I'll report back.

That would be cool to watch, just be careful.

Thanks for the info Steve. My oldest son is on the USS Abraham Lincoln in San Diego right now. Six feet of water isn't going to have much effect on an aircraft carrier though. You be careful buddy.

I haven't heard anything from Kiwi yet. We have been thinking about him since we first heard about the quake. I'm shure that he is very busy with the events of the day.

San Diego Tsunami report. Small extra tidal activity, nothing more. In fact, you had to know the beach you were at pretty well to even notice that. Most people watching probably missed it entirely. I was standing with the Lifeguards who posted this report. As weak as it is, the report almost exaggerates. I can't chock this one up as "see a Tsunami" on my Bucket List, and my Wife insists I owe her one for dragging her along to watch.
