There was a massive 7.9 earthquake in the vicinity of Tonga just a few minutes ago; here's info from the USGS . There has been NO tsunami alert issued for our region. Repeat: NO TSUNAMI ALERT FOR HUMBOLDT COUNTY.

There's been tons of seismic disturbances in that area recently , it seems. Check out this awesome video of an underwater volcano erupting thereabouts earlier this week:
