I'll be blunt. I was scared. I literally had got done watching the 'Bachelor' on my DVR, and put my head down on my couch. Next thing I know I hear the EAS going off on my TV and read about this Tsunami warning for the Bay Area. When I hear Tsunami I actually didn't know exactly what it was but than looked it up and read on Twitter more about it. I kept the TV and thank goodness in time the Tsunami looked like it it wouldn't be as impactful as I thought. Thank God everyone in Alaska and the surrounding area is safe because they could've been hit hard.
