Unfounded rumour of tsunami

A rumour recently circulated over the Internet, claiming that a tsunami would occur during the solar eclipse on 22nd July 2009 and asking recipients to stay away from beaches.  There is no scientific evidence substantiating that solar eclipses would cause tsunamis.
With the current scientific and technological capability, there is no reliable method to predict the occurrence of an earthquake, nor the occurrence of a tsunami in the event of an earthquake.  Please do not believe in such a rumour and make unnecessary speculations.
