Strike Hard: A Bomber Airfield at War, RAF Downham Market and Its Squadrons 1942-46 (Aviation)

Now in paperback -- this is an account of the RAF bomber airfield at Downham Market in Norfolk which gives a fascinating protrait of one small cog in the machinery of World War II. Every night for three long years young men of RAF Bomber Command flew from this East Anglican airfield in their Stirlings, Lancasters and Mosquitoes to pound into dust the might of Nazi Germany. Their contribution towards winning the war was crucial, but the cost in lives and equipment was high: 160 aircraft and 900 airmen were lost in the operations.

Tsunami Sirens Blare Through Hawaii

Tsunami Sirens Blare Through Hawaii

A tsunami threatened the Pacific Rim on Saturday, with an 8.8-magnitude
earthquake off Chile sending potentially deadly waves across the ocean at
the speed of a jetliner.

Hawaii woke residents with sirens, alerting them to the waves. A tsunami
warning - the highest alert level - was issued earlier for the island chain.
Boats and people near the coast were being evacuated. Hilo International
Airport, located along the coast, was closed.

Residents lined up at supermarkets to stock up on water, canned food and
batteries. Cars lined up 15 long at several gas stations.

The first waves were expected at 11:19 a.m. Saturday (4:19 p.m. EST; 2119
GMT). Most Pacific Rim nations, awaiting further data, did not order
evacuations but advised people in low-lying areas to be on the lookout.

In Tonga, however, police and defense forces have begun a mass evacuation
from low-lying coastal areas as they warned residents that tsunami waves
about three feet (one meter) high could wash ashore within three hours.

"I can hear the church bells ringing to alert the people," National Disaster
Office deputy director Mali'u Takai told The Associated Press. "We will move
up to 50,000 people to the interior and away from the coasts."

Waves 6 feet (1.8 meter) above normal hit near Concepcion, Chile shortly
after the quake.

Unlike other tsunamis in recent years, emergency officials along the Pacific
have hours to prepare and possibly evacuate residents.

"We've got a lot of things going for us," said Charles McCreery, the
director of the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, which issues warnings to
almost every country around the Pacific Rim and to most of the Pacific
island states. "We have a reasonable lead time.

"We should be able to alert everyone in harm's way to move out of the
evacuation zones," he said.

A warning was also in effect for Guam, American Samoa, Samoa and dozens of
other Pacific islands.

American Samoa Lt. Gov. Aitofele Sunia activated emergency services and
called on residents of shoreline villages to move to higher ground. Police
in Samoa issued a nationwide alert to begin coastal evacuations. The tsunami
is expected to reach the islands Saturday morning.

Meanwhile, disaster management officials in Fiji said they have been warned
to expect waves of as high as 7.5 feet (2.3 meters) to hit the northern and
eastern islands of the archipelago and the nearby Tonga islands.

A lower-grade tsunami advisory was in effect for the coast of California and
an Alaskan coastal area from Kodiak to Attu islands. Tsunami Center
officials said they did not expect the advisory would be upgraded to a

Waves were likely to hit Asian, Australian and New Zealand shores within 24
hours of Saturday's quake. A tsunami wave can travel at up to 600 mph, said
Jenifer Rhoades, tsunami program manager at the National Weather Service in
Washington, DC.

After the sirens are sounded in Hawaii, people in coastal areas, such as
tourist-filled Waikiki, would then be instructed on a possible evacuation.
The sirens will also be sounded again three hours prior to the estimated
arrival time.

McCreery said he didn't know how big the waves will be, but expected them to
be the largest to hit Hawaii since 1964.

"If you're in an evacuation zone, police or civil defense volunteers would
instruct you to evacuate, or instructions will come out over the radio and
TV," said Shelly Ichishita, spokeswoman for the state's civil defense.

If coastal areas are evacuated, visitors in Waikiki would be moved to higher
floors in their hotels, rather than moved out of the tourist district, which
could cause gridlock.

Some Pacific nations in the warning area were heavily damaged by a tsunami
last year.

On Sept. 29, a tsunami spawned by a magnitude-8.3 earthquake killed 34
people in American Samoa, 183 in Samoa and nine in Tonga. Scientists later
said that wave was 46 feet (14 meters) high.

Past South American earthquakes have had deadly effects across the Pacific.

A tsunami after a magnitude-9.5 quake that struck Chile in 1960, the largest
earthquake ever recorded, killed about 140 people in Japan, 61 in Hawaii and
32 in the Philippines.

That tsunami was about 3.3 to 13 feet (one to four meters) in height,
Japan's Meteorological Agency said.

Japanese public broadcaster NHK quoted earthquake experts as saying the
tsunami would likely be tens of centimeters (inches) high and reach Japan in
about 22 hours.

A tsunami of 28 centimeters (11 inches) was recorded after a magnitude-8.4
earthquake near Chile in 2001.

The Meteorological Agency said it was still investigating the likelihood of
a tsunami in Japan and did not issue a formal coastal warning.

Australia, meanwhile, was put on a tsunami watch.

The Joint Australian Tsunami Warning Center issued a tsunami warning
Saturday night for a "potential tsunami threat" to New South Wales state,
Queensland state, Lord Howe Island and Norfolk Island.
