Tijuana Mexico Weather

Donna asks…

Did the warning massage from tsunami center in japan earlier this stutation?

Tijuana answers:

The people in Japan got only about 15 minutes warning. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center and the USGS have been putting out information, watches, and warnings since it occurred around eight hours ago.

—————————

General information:

—————————

Midway Island has had a 8-foot surge as of 1:15 a.m. Hawaii time/3:15 a.m. Pacific/6:15 a.m. Eastern; more waves are expected, and powerful aftershocks continue in Japan, so being cautious is very important.

Hawaii has started to be hit with the first of the waves as of 3:30 a.m. Their time (5:30 a.m. Pacific time, 8:30 a.m. Eastern time); the first waves in Honolulu have been about 2.5 feet, but those are south-facing shores. No data so far on the north-facing shores.

The magnitude 8.9 earthquake occurred just off the coast of Japan at:

Friday, March 11, 2011 at 12:46:23 AM (EST) – Eastern Standard (New York, Toronto, Jamaica)
Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 11:46:23 PM (CST) – Central Standard (Chicago, Mexico City, Costa Rica)
Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 10:46:23 PM (MST) – Mountain Standard (Calgary, Denver, Phoenix)
Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 09:46:23 PM (PST) – Pacific Standard (Vancouver, Los Angeles, Tijuana)
Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 08:46:23 PM – Anchorage
Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 07:46:23 PM – Adak
Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 07:46:23 PM – Honolulu

The first surges (6 – 7 feet) are expected to reach Hawaii at around 6 – 7 hours after the intial quake, and the west coast of the U.S. About 9-12 hours after the initial quake – about 3:00 a.m. Hawaii time (5:00 a.m. Pacific time/8:00 a.m. Eastern time), then around 7:00 a.m. Pacific time (about 10:00 a.m. Eastern time) for the northern Pacific Coast of the U.S. (Washington and Oregon), and about an hour or so later (about 8:00 a.m. Pacific time/ 11:00 a.m. Eastern time) in California. It’s getting to Washington and Oregon earlier because we’re due west of Japan, while California is somewhat southwest.

There is an excellent possibility that there will be more than one surge; just because one comes through and then is over with, it does NOT mean that there no others.

If you’re anywhere in the Pacific or on the Pacific rim, keep yourself informed:

Chris asks…

Is San Diego, California a good place to live?

I’m moving to California in June of 2007 and I was wondering what is the best city, safest city, and cleanest city. I was going to move to Los Angeles until I heard how bad, and dirty it was. I have decided to move to San Diego now, and I was wondering am I making a great choice? Is there anything I should know about San Diego? I found a great place in Downtown San Diego, and was also wondering is the Downtown in San Diego, safe, clean, and beautiful. Or is it like Los Angeles Downtown? Can you easily find work? How far it is from Los Angeles, because I’m in the Entertainment Business also and would need to make frequent trips there for Entertainment and Music purposes. Please let me know, thanks!
I heard that it is very unsafe to walk in Downtown Los Angeles alone, and especially at night. Is it like the in Downtown San Diego? The zip code for the place I’m at is 92101 is that in a general good area or not?

Tijuana answers:

I think it’s a beautiful city, it’s just expensive (real estate) wise to live there. I’m unsure about the apartments though.

The beaches are really beautiful, I mean GORGEOUS beaches. I went Downtown while I was there on my trip, at night…and it seemed pretty safe. Although, I didn’t see any cops there (maybe that’s a good thing?) They have a lot of clubs and restaurants in the Gaslamp Quarter (Downtown area)…check out the House of Blues if you’re ever there. You know, they only have 5 right now in the entire USA. Dallas is next on the list.
I think you will LOVE the weather…who wouldn’t?

I’m not sure if you can easily find work there, San Diego is 2 hours from Los Angeles and there is a high way…called the 5 which takes you there…pretty much all the way to San Fransisco (which is 5 hrs from San Diego). And also South on San Diego…Tijuana, Mexico.

There is a Navy base in San Diego, so it is very influenced by the military. I thought the Navy base was beautiful…I mean, everything is there. There are nice hills and many houses that are sitting on top of them…many of the homes are very close together.

I hope I have answered some of your questions…I think San Diego would be a nice place to live!

Daniel asks…

Do you really want to know about the border?

Be it mexican or salvadoranian the ones who cross the border illegally do so for work. The ones who cross legally do so to go shopping and spend mega cash and pay lots of sales tax which they do not profit from. Americans cross into mexico to get laid, drunk or buy drugs and a few as tourists, very few. Tijuana is the busiest border crossing. and the only thing to do in Tijuana is go to the bars or strip clubs, massage parlours where you cant get a massage 1000’s of pharmacies which will sell things they shouldnt but with 20 dlls a dr. will write you a prescription. There are also 1000’s of americans who live in Tijuana illegally and no one says a word as long as they arent bothering anyone who cares. If there were no illegals in the fields how many citizens are willing to go out there and pick for 20 a day for a 10 hr day 6 days a week. Sure there has to be some kind of control but people are getting ridiculous. noone ever said anything before about them so why now?
What really amazes me is how everyone one is against farm and field laborors who have crossed over to pick the food you eat at a cheap price.and do not have the benefit of health insurance. No one will be able to afford lettuce if regular wages have to be paid for a citizen to pick it. Everyone acts like these short little mexicans are such criminals and yet no one says a word about all the millions invading america from the terrorists countries now do they? Why is that? Because they come with cash. Mexicans dont plan on harming the US but all those other people what are their plans? I’m not the one stuck on stupid. Who blew up the twin towers? Sure wasnt a mexican now was it? Sure the borders have to be secure to keep terrorists out and to avoid illegals they should just open camps again where the men go to work and back to the camp. How many of you are willing to go shovel cow crap? Not me. You know who does? Mexicans. I live in TJ so my facts are 100%.

Tijuana answers:

Actually,

even legal Mexican immigrants work in the fields…
But unlike illegal immigrants, they get welfare.

But at least someone is doing it.

I live in Texas, and I have NEVER seen a white person performing sincere manual labor like construction and crop-picking, unless you count the guys driving around in heavy machinery.
The truth is, America is outsourcing, even if it is illegally, because Americans are lazy. There are plenty of legal WHITE Americans who refuse to get a better-paying job, or work in construction, because it would mean they would have to work harder and then get kicked off of welfare.
I don’t see many people who are against immigration going out in 100 degree weather, building houses and roads. If they are so against illegal immigration, why don’t they do the work illegal immigrants do, for the wages they do, and stop it.
But no – most would rather sit in their air conditioned cubicles and complain about it on Yahoo Answers.
