Tonga Is Relieved

There was a big earthquake near Tonga today, in the Pacific. 7.8 on the Richter scale.

A tsunami warning was immediately issued, because that size earthquake in the ocean often produces a tidal wave. Like the one which devastated Sumatra last year.

Well, they canceled the tsunami warning, but that isn't the only reason that Tonga-nians are breathing easier.

Now they won't need FEMA either.
