Smoma Tsunami

All good El Skippo, but only coz we face a little bit of west and the wave was an east swell, we got so lucky…..I was running for the trees clutching surfboards sreaming for the guests to get outta bed (it hit at 7am) and we had waist to chest high surges, but the island of Upolo east of here took telegraph pole size sets, and Salanis resort and all others are gone, replaced by mud an dbodies. Its pretty messed up man, the bubble has burst dude. Its heavy here and the smell is rancid. Still troopin along tho bro, surviving and thankful. 

All good mate, more soon Diz

    The officials here issued a warning to all the yachts to leave the lagoons for the open sea and closed all the business urging people to leave for higher ground, even evacuating tourists from the over the water bungalows, but the Tsunami was a non event here in French Polynesia. There are island wide warning sirens and if they go off 3 times and it is not the first Wednesday of the Month when they test the system, it is not a test and the systems seems to work quite well at informing the population here of a possible disaster approaching.
