We had quite the scare two nights ago due to the earthquake in Sendai, Japan forming a tsunami our way. After a sleepless night, nothing damaging or dangerous happened on Oahu. I am very grateful for that. I think only a few houses, hotels, and stores on the big island and Kauai got flooded... NOTHING in compared to Japan though. It leaves me kind of speechless...
It's just overall awful and saddening for the people there. My prayers are going their way.
There are quite a few visitors from Japan here with relatives from the area as well as Hawaii residents with family who live there. It's just a waiting game to see if they are alive. In case there is someone out there with family or friends in Japan (who is reading this), you can list you and your lost ones here with Red Cross to make that connection to know they are safe.
