I observed a two foot tidal surge with about a 90 second interval about 1530 today on the Wainai coast. Was small but kept repeating regularly for awile. Caused some unusual ocean current but if you werent watching for it you would miss it. I went to see if it matched up with any tsnami alert time estimations but they didnt have one.
