NO tsunami! {SMILE}

Well, the tsunami warning was called off at 2-something or other. No significant damage was reported by all four mayors (the heads of the four counties). The highest waves were in Kahului, at 3+ feet. Hilo's highest waves were 2+ feet. Apparently that was high enough to make some interesting wave action around Coconut Island and the breakwater here in Hilo. {Smile}

Sorry I didn't write sooner; it's now after four. I was napping when the alert got called off. I got up around 3, and kicked the migraine I got up with shortly before 4. As it finished leaving, I got on the computer to tell you about the waves. So I was as prompt as feasible. {Smile}

Tsunami Warning

Well, my state is under a tsunami warning. Fortunately, our house is at 800 feet elevation, so we don't have to worry about an earthquake-generated tsunami. Unfortunately, we badly need milk. However, there's a 7-Eleven that's fairly close, and no where near the tsunami evacuation zones. {Smile}
