I made this separate breaking news story from the original earthquake one due to the fact I have heard reports that this tsunami has the very good potential to reach 15-20 feet high. If that happens, this will quickly become a major catastrophe.

Here in Washington, they have also sounded a low tsunami warning for the coast as this tsunami will definitely not reach the height of the one to hit Hawaii but does have the potential for very dangerous coastal currents.
