I'm listening to the news now...a replay of the 10p news, I'd guess. Anyway, the evacuation sirens are expected around 6am for an approx. 11:20-11:30a, state-wide tsunami event expected to last 6-10 hours. Vertical evacuation for Waikiki is encouraged. So much for my trek to Makaha in the morning...just referred to as "an unnecessary risk"! I, with video camera in hand, will observe from my daughter's 36th floor Waikiki condo that faces the ocean. Stay safe everyone. Don't watch from the beach, please!

ETA: Its not a replay of the earlier news. KHNL is on live.

Of course KGMB and KFVE (as well as KHNL) are showing live news reports. KHON and KITV is having a text crawl over their scheduled programming.

Oddly enough KIKU, KHET, and OC16 are not doing any text crawls.

Just came back from Don Quijote to stock up on bottled water and canned soda. It seems that everyone else who was there also was buying bottled water.

KHON now has Joe Moore on doing a live report with the help of someone else who's name I can't remember.

KFVE and KHNL are showing the Today show, KITV is showing paid programming and KGMB is showing CBS's Early show but all these stations are displaying text crawls.

And Joe Moore just mentioned that KHON is in or close to a tsunami flood zone.

So far KHON is reporting that Civil Defense will sound the sirens at 6am HST and the first wave is expected to hit Hilo around 11:19 am.

The official website for the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center is at http://www.prh.noaa.gov/ptwc/ . They posting regular updates and that's the site to follow during this situation.
The earthquake in Chile was at the same location that caused the last tsunami that hit Hilo and killed so many people, according to KGMB.
There are already looong lines at all the gas stations and stores are already crowded with folks getting emergency supplies. Many of the 'big box' stores opened around 4am.
Good luck, everyone...

Predicted impact time for tsunami in Cabo, Mexico, came and went with no evidence of tsunami. Just another nice day in a paradise location.

Heh heh. I wonder if Mufi will rush back to Hawaii as fast as he rushed over to Hanauma Bay.

My hearts go out to EVERYONE that the Tsunami Expected will not and hope not touch the Hawaiian Islands.... I have friends, families, my Sam Goody friends that I worked with, & classmates that I went to school with from Aiea High 1986 that still reside on the islands.....

MSNBC says that Ewa Beach is gonna get hit first vs. a News Link Clip of KGMB/KHNL says Hilo is gonna get hit first.....

In looking over the Atlas of Hawaii, vol. 2, the 1960 Chile 9.5 quake produced "recorded heights of tsunami run-up in feet" in the range of 12 to 13 ft. on the se coast of the Big Island, to 16 at Kealakekua Bay and 7 at Hilo, in the 11 to 9 ft. range on southern Maui, 6 to 12 on southern O'ahu and up to 14 at southern Kaua'i. Since this 8.8 quake was smaller than the 1960 quake one maybe run-ups will be a bit lower. The truly large run-ups are from the 1946 Aleutian quake, up to 55 near Pololu on the Big Island and 53 near Hanalei Bay on Kaua'i.

Best coverage is on KGMB/KHNL/KFVE, with their live camera looking at Hilo Bay. You can see the water going out of the bay and more of the rocks and beach being exposed. Incredible, seeing the changes minute to minute. Also cameras showing changes Kona side. Everything seems to be happening 30 to 45 minutes later than first predicted, so assuming that's correct we have another hour or so here on Oahu.

EDIT: I was writing this as Helen posted and didn't see that one, posted a minute before mine. Amazing photos, eh, Helen?

WOW! Look at that surge coming inside Hilo's Coconut Island, to the right of the bridge! And look how the water has risen on that beach to the left of the bridge just in the past minute!!! Maybe a 2' rise in one minute!

It's wild watching the white water effect as it all gets sucked out and filled in. The more the white water, the stronger and faster it's moving.
