Tsunami churns up Northland sea in NZ....

While the waves aren't especially large in New Zealand the tsunami affected us by creating very dangerous seas.

These pics, from WeatherWatch.co.nz , show the violent water churning off the normally calm coast at Mangonui NZ then heading into Mangonui harbour.

Sunday's tsunami still affecting seas around New Zealand....

The seas off New Zealand's east coast remained dangerous today more than 24 hours since a tsunami passed by reports WeatherWatch.co.nz.

WeatherWatch.co.nz also says although the seas are relatively calm people need to be aware of dangerous underwater rips that may not be visible.

The forecasting site recommended people stay out of the sea until at least Tuesday.

The attached GeoNet website gauge clearly shows a choppy sea...

Do the big waves challenge the surfers, or do they stay away?

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
