It looks like there is not going to be a flooding Tsunami. However, the current activity could get worse and it will last for next few hours.

A Tsunami is not one wave, it is a series of waves. This is what we are seeing now.

Stay away from the harbour or river. Currents and streams will be unpredictable.
