The United States Navy, Pacific Command in Hawaii, is conducting its SECOND Tsunami Exercise this month, today simulating a Magnitude 6.9 earthquake, at a depth of 2 miles, in the Pacific Ocean.

The Exercise, at Pearl Harbor, puts Sailors and Marines through the paces that would have to be taken if an actual destructive Tsunami was headed for their base: Ships, planes, helicopters, munitions, weapons would have to be either secured or moved to higher ground, perhaps within minutes, while military members families would have to be evacuated at the same time; pandemonium if it ever actually took place.

Depending upon where the Tsunami originated, it may not be possible to save ANY ships, planes, helicopters or the like.  If, for instance, a volcanic eruption on a nearby Hawaiian island took place causing a land collapse into the sea, a monstrous tidal wave (i.e. Tsunami) could envelope the nearby islands with a wall of water 100 meters tall in as little as twenty minutes!

Such waves move through the open ocean at the speed of jet airliners - about 500 MPH -- and there is no man-made defense capable of withstanding the onslaught of water.   The only thing mankind can try to do is to get out of its way.

Given the ongoing eruption of the Mount Kilauea volcano on the southeastern flank of the "Big Island" of Hawaii, and the very real possibility that an unstable land mass called the "Hilina Slump" which is already detaching, could sent up to 5,000 cubic kilometers of earth plunging into the sea,  it is right and proper that our armed forces practice for this type of potential disaster.

 

Hal Turner Commentary

It's nice to see that our military, and local Hawaiian Civil Defense, are taking very proactive steps to deal with this potential force of nature as best they can, given its unimaginable power.

Kudos for doing a good job,  to the US Military and to Hawaii Civil Defense.

We can't prevent mother nature from unleashing hell, but we'll be there for you if it happens.  It's what Americans do for each other; because we are, in the final analysis, a family.

One, big, family.

Like any family, we have arguments.  Fights.  Things get messy at times.  Ugly even; especially over political, social, and cultural issues.

But thanks to Divine Providence, we help each other. 

For all of America's "warts" - for all the mess our personal Liberty often creates -- when the chips are down, we help each other. 

I wouldn't have it any other way.
