Hawaii Tsunami

The aftermath...fortunately, none.   Only inconvenience.  

There was no actual Tsunami wave lashing away at shorelines, scooping away buildings and people.   There was major, major tidal like shifts that took place.   More than a normal days tidal shift taking place in 3 to 10 minutes and then reversing.

Just saying...the effects were seen, and big enough.   

This was the 5th biggest recorded earthquake since we as humans could record them....

The biggest was when Chile had an earthquake in 1960 and it devasted Hawaii's second largest city, Hilo.  It was a 9.5, this was a 8.8.

Thanks to those who expressed concern on the blogs that I post on.
