Earthquake Caused Landslide… Anyone Get a Message?

I just read that the 4.2 Earthquake the other day did cause a “Small Landslide”.

…Police in Hilo said yesterday that there were no reports of injuries or damage, but the temblor did cause a small landslide

I need to sign up for this warning and quit relying on Twitter.

I’m looking at the time I tweeted the Message out to the world and I’m thinking dang… that was fast!

Anyone get a text message? I don’t remember there being a landslide the last earthquake when THERE WAS a text message sent out.

Earthquake… 33 Minutes For Civil Defense to Get Out Messages is Not Sufficient

Of course when we have the big earthquakes I’m no where near my computer to see what kind of response time it takes for the county to get word out about it.

It’s nice that we have other bloggers on this island such as Andrew Cooper that actually thought about the Civil Defense Alert and the possible tsunami that could have been triggered by such an event.

Andrew blogged:

…Nice to know that the system actually works and let me know that there was no tsunami danger from this earthquake. Never mind that I received the message 33 minutes after the event, more than enough time for a tsunami to reach anyplace on the island!

A moderate earthquake occurred at 12:44:45 PM (HST) on Tuesday, April 14, 2009 .
The magnitude 5.0 event occurred 10 km (6 miles) NW of Ka`ena Point.
The hypocentral depth is 10 km ( 6 miles).
