Tsunami Alert in Acapulco

By: Patrick Ellis | Real Acapulco News - 11 March, 2011

(Acapulco, El Sur 11 March) The U.S. Geological Survey has warned that as a result of the masive earthquake in Japan earlier today, the Pacific Coast of Mexico will feel the impact in the form of a title wave or tsunami. A series of waves up to 6 feet high was expected in Acapulco around 1:00 pm today, approximately 12 hours after the 8.9 Richter earthquake struck in Japan. Tidal swells were unusually high, but apparently Acapulco’s bay protected it from the wall of water. Water did not come up so high as to enter the streets.
