In this case, think of the geography. Why would Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands be exempt?

Methinks the warning was poorly worded.

I worry about Tsunami's as much as the New Ice Age!
I wish people would not post BS like this on the message board.
People around San Pedro will be driving around in their golfcarts wearing lifevest looking for high ground.

We are 10,000km away and the Shetland Islands have South America between us and them! Fact check before posting these type of alerts please!
