 TSUNAMI BULLETIN NUMBER 003
 PACIFIC TSUNAMI WARNING CENTER/NOAA/NWS
 ISSUED AT 1535Z 27 DEC 2004
 
 THIS BULLETIN IS FOR ALL AREAS OF THE PACIFIC BASIN EXCEPT
 ALASKA - BRITISH COLUMBIA - WASHINGTON - OREGON - CALIFORNIA.
 
 .................. TSUNAMI INFORMATION BULLETIN ..................
 
 THIS MESSAGE IS FOR INFORMATION ONLY. THERE IS NO TSUNAMI WARNING
 OR WATCH IN EFFECT.
 
 AN EARTHQUAKE HAS OCCURRED WITH THESE PRELIMINARY PARAMETERS
 
  ORIGIN TIME -  0059Z 26 DEC 2004
  COORDINATES -   3.4 NORTH   95.7 EAST 
  LOCATION    -  OFF W COAST OF NORTHERN SUMATERA
  MAGNITUDE   -  9.0
 
 EVALUATION
 
  SOME ENERGY FROM YESTERDAYS TSUNAMI IN THE INDIAN OCEAN HAS
  LEAKED INTO THE PACIFIC BASIN... PROBABLY FROM SOUTH OF THE
  AUSTRALIAN CONTINENT.  THIS ENERGY HAS PRODUCED MINOR
  SEA LEVEL FLUCTUATIONS AT MANY PLACES IN THE PACIFIC.  FOR
  EXAMPLE...
 
   50 CM CREST-TO-TROUGH AT CALLAO CHILE
   19 CM CREST-TO-TROUGH AT IQUIQUE CHILE
   13 CM CREST-TO-TROUGH AT PAGO PAGO AMERICAN SAMOA
   11 CM CREST-TO-TROUGH AT SUVA FIJI
   50 CM CREST-TO-TROUGH AT WAITANGI CHATHAM IS NEW ZEALAND
   65 CM CREST-TO-TROUGH AT JACKSON BAY NEW ZEALAND
   18 CM CREST-TO-TROUGH AT PORT VILA VANUATU
   06 CM CREST-TO-TROUGH AT HILO HAWAII USA
   22 CM CREST-TO-TROUGH AT SAN DIEGO CALIFORNIA USA
 
  HOWEVER... AT MANZANILLO MEXICO SEA LEVEL FLUCTUATIONS WERE
  AS MUCH AS 2.6 METERS CREST-TO-TROUGH PROBABLY DUE TO FOCUSING
  OF ENERGY BY THE EAST PACIFIC RISE AS WELL AS LOCAL RESONANCES.
 
  THIS IS TO ADVISE THAT SMALL SEA LEVEL CHANGES COULD CONTINUE
  TO BE OBSERVED ACROSS THE PACIFIC OVER THE NEXT DAY OR TWO
  UNTIL ALL ENERGY FROM THIS EVENT IS EVENTUALLY DISSIPATED.
 
 THIS WILL BE THE FINAL BULLETIN ISSUED FOR THIS EVENT UNLESS
 ADDITIONAL INFORMATION BECOMES AVAILABLE.
 
 THE WEST COAST/ALASKA TSUNAMI WARNING CENTER WILL ISSUE BULLETINS
