TOKYO -- A small tsunami hit northern Japan, estimated at 16 inches tall, Japan's Meteorological Agency said. A second tsunami, estimated at 8 inches, followed.
Um, seriously? 16 inches can still be considered a tsunami? That's like saying...I don't know. Something so rediculous that I can't think of anything as silly as calling a 16 inch wave a tsunami. Wondering how many oceanography students were sniggering in the back of the classroom the day they learned about this meteorlogical possibility.
