6:56 a.m.

That's when the phone rang. We looked at each other - who could be calling that early? I picked up the phone and the caller's name was "Emergency." I listened to a recording (male voice) that said, "This is the city of Hermosa Beach; this is a tsunami warning..." and, having gotten the message, I handed it over to Richie to listen . "Stay away from the beach" was the rest of the message.

Problem: the Drudge Report headline said that the California coast may get a 6 ft. tsunami.

But Hermosa is on it! And that's a good thing.

UPDATE: We thought Hermosa had called us because we used to live there and never changed our phone number when we moved. But a next door neighbor got the call, too. Hermosa really IS on it!
