OAKLAND, California (Reuters) - Residents in parts of northern California evacuated their homes on Friday as a tsunami triggered by the massive earthquake in Japan bore down on the U.S. and Canadian west coast.

The tsunami could reach 6 feet when it hits parts of the northern California coast, a state emergency agency spokesman said.

Authorities in Oregon advised coastal residents to evacuate and schools were to be closed along the coast.

Canada issued tsunami advisories for parts of British Columbia. The government said it believed a low-level tsunami had been generated that could affect buildings on the coast or create strong currents in harbors and isolated coastal areas. Local governments were advised to immediately evacuate marinas, beaches and other areas below the normal high tide mark.

The massive 8.9 magnitude quake in Japan triggered tsunami warnings for most of the Pacific basin. Advisories or warnings were in effect from Canada all the way down the Pacific coast of South America.

it is going to be a terrible disappointment to the media if this doesn't happen.

LOL, that's what I was thinking when I was watching the news this morning.

You're looking for a downside to what?

California coastal enclaves (Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc.,) being splashed by a tsunami.

I'd miss North Island NAS and pretty much all of San Diego, but a natural disaster that took out Venice, Santa Monica and San Francisco would be redundant after the election of Jerry Brown. It would be like the Titanic bouncing off the bottom of the ocean floor and tapping the base of the iceberg before finally settling down.

Ah. So, what you're saying is that you and Madisonian would like to see your countrymen killed and their homes and businesses destroyed. This is what I would describe as a traitorous state of mind.

I don't. I don't even hate California, although I could be forgiven if I did after having lived there for eight years. As I stated, a natural disaster would be redundant after the disaster that they voted in.

Ah. So, what you're saying is that you and Madisonian would like to see your countrymen killed and their homes and businesses destroyed. This is what I would describe as a traitorous state of mind.

You are often confused. I don't want to see anyone in California die (with the exception of those death row inmates who have been convicted of various horrific crimes). I'm only saying that there's not a lot of difference between Lemmings lining up to leap off of a cliff and having the cliff crumble beneath them.

You wrote that you're looking for a downside to Los Angeles and San Francisco being splashed by a tsunami. The downside is pretty fucking obvious and so we all know what you meant. But I can understand why you're trying to walk back your ugly commentary.

I think it was dark humor and instead of taking umbrage, you should joke back.

I think that you're trolling for anything resembling a supporting comment.

But since we're on the subject of crappy things that people have been saying, do you have any response to my examples of Van Jones' and Mumia Abu-Jamal's racist rants, or are you just hoping that we'll forget that you couldn't call a bigot a bigot?

I've only been providing evidence for, what, a couple of weeks now? Let me know when you have an answer.

Good advice, but that would require a sense of humor. Nightie is significantly deficient in that.

That is pure bullshit. You liberals have no sense of humor. We are just joshing you unlike the union thugs and politicians in the Democratic party that mean what they say when they want to harm/kill Bush, Walker, Senators, etc.

If you want some sick shit, go over to DU. Them fuckers are insane with their hatred. Everyone here is just having a little fun with you clowns. However, the Lord works in mysterious ways.:)

One of the biggest downsides is that you weren't in northern japan last night.

That line does not appear in the article. I read it twice. So where did it come from.
