I woke early this morning and learned of the devasting Chile earthquake. I extend my sympathies to all those who are impacted by this tragedy.
Hawaii is under a Tusnami warning with the first wave expected at 11:19 AM today and subsequent waves for 6-8 hours afterwards. The Tsunami sirens went off at 6 AM and I'm hearning reports of people lining up for gas and groceries. TV coverage showed one store that had a limit on the amount of SPAM people can buy. The Hilo airport is reported closed and I would assume Honolulu airport will close since it's only 13 feet above sea level but I haven't heard yet.
I'll issue other reports as the day progresses.
