Aloha, dear readers. The tsunami arrived around 3 a.m., but it did not hit with overwhelming force that we know of so far. Some boats and harbors sustained damage, and a restaurant on the island of Oahu was destroyed. Hawaii is just now beginning to go out and assess the shoreline areas. The tsunami warning has not been lifted yet, but I expect it will be in the next few hours. I sincerely appreciate all of your concerns for my well-being. Our local authorities were well organized with getting information out and it seems like most people embraced the aloha spirit and cooperated with the men and women in charge. We still have roads closed and I don't believe the airport is allowing flights just yet. My thoughts and prayers now turn toward Japan. Mahalo.
