My goodness July 6th was a busy day!
Have you seen the amazing footage coming from Phoenix, Arizona of the dust storm? Newsline 9 Internet Director Katie Rosenberg sent this video in my direction earlier today. The footage of a cloud of dust swallowing up one of the largest cities in the Southwest is just incredible. Doesn’t it look like something straight out of an epic Hollywood disaster movie?
Not an hour after I saw that video I got word that another large earthquake has struck in the Pacific Ocean. The latest quake that was centered off-shore from the New Zealand islands measuring 7.6 on the Richter Scale. It prompted Tsunami Warnings after a 6-foot Tsunami was measured in the ocean. Luckily nothing major has come from it and those warnings have been lifted. But it has assuredly rattled quite a few nerves around the South Pacific and in New Zealand in particular after their previous run in with deadly earthquakes this year.
Here’s a video from the New Zealand Herald explaining the earthquake and tsunami and why it didn’t become another major disaster.
