12:03 am
magnitude it will happen for several weeks. tsunami watches at one point included a dozen nations, cancelled. the warnings, cancelled. the remains in hawaii. i will read it allow, from the warning center. a major tsunami is not expected to strike the state of hawaii, threats occur that may be hazardous to swimmers and boaters as well. 3:30 in the morning local time there, i think that danger will be the past at that point. by the time we are in daylight, if people want to go on the beaches of hawaii, i think that will be lifted. as far as the earthquakes, they will continue for a time. you get an 8.2, you will get
12:04 am

12:06 am
appears over, what does this 8.2 earthquake tell you what is ahead for the big one everyone is waiting for. >> this is already a big one. what it tells you, there will probe be a lot of after shocks in the coming weeks and months. we are going through that stage right now, we are seeing fairly significant 3.5 range every few minutes at the moment. >> we are seeing an abundance of caution on the part of authorities. what can they expect in the way of the after shocks and when it is safe to return to their homes? >> it won't be in the next two days or so there. is always a possibility of
12:07 am
having a quake that is larger than the 8.2. as a general rule, the main shock is proceeded by smaller quakes. sometimes, that doesn't happen quite that way. if there was enough stress in that area, to warrant a larger quake, that is a possibility over the next couple of days or so. we will probably see some significant sized aftershocks, possible in the magnitude of six or possibly in the magnitude seven range in the next several days. >> explain to us, in the initial stage, seven hours or so, there was extensive tsunami watches and warnings, that coast line, up and down the coast line, and
12:08 am
before we knew it, suddenly, they were cancelled. explain us us what you go through at the u.s. geological survey, to put out warnings like that. >> we don't put out warnings, that would be the noa tsunami warning center that puts out the warnings, they base it on a time frame. when this quake occurred, close to the coast it generated a localized tsunami that had a wave height around seven feet maximum in the central area. over the next couple of hours, they are able to access if there are various edpisode of waves that might be generated locally, they look at the prospect if

12:11 am
news when they come back. >> the other interesting part of this is that british submarine, of course, it sent going to be successful useful, until they narrow down the search zone. is there a sense that they want to throw it in there and start some sefrmt in a sense of desperation, perhaps? >> i think it is not just a sense of desperation, the fact that window is closing on finding the wreckage. they are bringing in all the possible, in case they are able to find the debris, deploy the scans, and a locator, for the u.s. navy, a submarine drone, that has sonar capability. they are all moving into the search area, in case they find a piece of the plane within that window, able to deploy them as
