With the recent seismic activity in the Solomon Islands , tropical cyclone style alerts were issued along the eastern coast of Australia for possibility of a tsunami. People rushed home from work, pulled their children out of schools. Many people smirked and joked about the non arrival of the tsunami. Those people who say unnecessary panic was created would be the first to stand up and whine like a stuck pig IF the tsunami had of hit and no warning was given. to be forewarned is to be forearmed.
