O.P. 8.0 Earthquake off of New Zealand; Tsunami Warning Cancelled
An earthquake rated between 7.8 and 8.1 on the Richter scale caused a massive alert over fears of a tsunami. The earthquake epicenter was 95 miles south of Neiafu, Tonga.  The U.S. Geological Survey now believes that there is no tsunami.  After about an hour of watchful eyes on Ocean monitoring devices, they strongly believe that there is no need to worry about a tsunami now.  The last tsuanmi was caused by a 9.0 earthquake near Indonesia on December 26th, 2004.

Sources: FOX News, CNN, MSNBC

I just read the news from the link you provided.
Too bad the tsunami (if there is one) is predicted to hit shores around 5 AM.
They probably aren't aware of the tsunami wave right now.

what does an earthquake have to do with a world going mental? They have been around for ever. A person being killed just for an iPod is a mental world. But besides that, I hope nothing bad will happen to the surrounding area's. The world can miss another great disaster.

Edit: seems that the alert is cancelled by now and so far there's no or not much damage.
