I imagine that tsunami-forecasting oceanographers yesterday had the same feeling of relief that meteorologists have when we issue a tornado watch and a tornado warning and there is nothing but a single weak tornado in the middle of nowhere -- but, that tornado is photographed by 30 storm chasers, thus validating the scientific accuracy of the forecast.

Congratulations, tsunami forecasters. So glad the waves were weak.
