special announcement to all my fellow islanders, there is plenty food in my place, so stop by for supper shall the need arises. please shower and have breakfast before 11 am!
all coastlines has been evacuated, radio and sirens did a good job alerting everyone. hotels are built strong and guests are asked to move up to floors higher than 3rd floor. most events canceled. stay home everyone.
we won’t know till about 3 hours from now exactly how tall the tsunami will be. but based on the magnitude of Chile’s earthquake, it can be bad. but again, waves are known to just calm down last minute.
will keep my computer off, to save battery. no baking today.
walked and bathed, stock pots filled with water, family phoned and safe. now chilling and waiting for the zero hour. yikes.
boats are heading out to the safer deeper seas, airport activity in honolulu remains normal, traffic is another story.
i think we are GOOD, everyone in Hawaii is good. the water receded but never came back which would be the tsunami. what a scary thought. 60 minutes past the official ETA, and we are ok. the worse will be the grocery stores, now everyone will be returning the stuff they bought early today.
boats out in the ocean, looks like a pool of fleas! an helicopter on my downstairs high school parking lot. and zero traffic. time to water my plants with all the water i accumulated on my le creuset stock pots.
just trying to make fun out of this. it really wasn’t.
here is a link where you can see how much the ocean receded. so glad, the water didn’t come back strong at all, that would have been a tsunami! photos taken by my friends at coffessofhawaii.com http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/album.php?aid=160175&id=98614377154&ref=nf
