Tsunami Travel Times from NOAA

As of this post, we are about 15 minutes away from the first wave hitting Hilo Bay.

Here are some resources for information:

  • For live UStream coverage, click here.
  • The tsunami coverage is now the top trending topic on Twitter, with the hashtag #hitsunami
  • KGMB and KHNL have a live stream as well, here.

So far, Civil Defense and the Coast Guard have done an excellent job evacuating people.  We’ll load more resources as the information comes available.

Be safe, get to high ground.

Here is a great way to be notified of any impending disaster or emergency situation if you live on Kauai. The County of Kauai has an emergency notification service you can sign up for. It’s called Connect-CTY. and allows authorized civic leaders to send a message to your cell, home or business phone. Go to http://www.kauai.gov, find the one-step notification button, and register your phone numbers!

Nothing like flying home from Kauai to a tsunami warning and evacuation in Puako Beach… I’m happy to report, all is okay! The tsunami warning has been lifted and the party has now just begun…Big Island style. So grateful everyone is okay!!!! 🙂

We evacuated Diamond Head as well & got some great shots of the coast off Wailupe. Largest reef exposure I’ve seen from up there and water ripping out the channels. That’s about it other than seeing a flotilla of boats out there the fled the marinas…. beautiful day otherwise 🙂
