    some areas have been evacuated - can't imagine living through this, but lots (sort of) of warning.
    instead of what we all have seen in the past few years
    if you have some spare time

    Been watching CNN and CBC for the last couple of hours. Hopefully there won't be injuries or much damage in Hawaii.

    seems to be the depth that causes the nasty tsunamis:

    indoesia- 50 km
    japan - 24.4
    this one - 10 km.

    still amazing the 'ripple' effect - guessing what the hawiians are going through is
    mild but awful,,,

    Lucky that it happened far enough offshore, hopefully too many won't be affected by it.

    Just thought I'd point it out in passing . . ..


    Matthew 24:7,8 “For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another. 8 All these things are a beginning of pangs of distress.
