Tsunami?

Just as I was ready to go home after a long day at work, my colleague received a text message about the massive earthquake in Japan. Sabah was one of the countries warned and I stay very, very near the sea! Do I leave without my dogs or don't? I went back for the dogs and the sight of leash had them super excited and Wawa was panting and drooling even before I could leash him up. That dog is so excitable. We're in our town home - a dull shop house in the middle of cars and noise and the dogs are not happy. Wawa has been pacing restlessly almost the whole night and he refused to relieve himself without his cage. I know he is suffering. Coco is whining for her toys but there aren't any here. My hamsters have been left behind and they must've been looking for their wheels all night. In darkness too. I managed to warn one neighbor but everyone was still walking about innocently and as I was driving to town I saw people bathing in the sea (!) and sitting along the beach taking shots of the beautiful sunset.

Are you all okay Tooki?? Was there any kind of a surge wave where you are?? Aren't people strange....swimming in the sea when there is a Tsunami warning! Rubie's mum.

We are ok, thank you! Everything was normal, no surge wave at all. Got a text message yesterday about shells appearing on the shore and impending disaster but it's just a hoax I believe. Today there's another one about Fukushima nuclear reactor explosion and to watch out for acid rain....what next?
