Tsunami Update

To all of our friends who have emailed, called, or sent a text message... we are ok and are preparing. We know it's national news at this point, but here's an update from how things look in Hawaii:
  • We are currently preparing ourselves for loss of utility service for 72 hours. This is normal for hurricane preparation as well. We have some supplies left from hurricane season, we're replenishing water at the moment.
  • Many stores and public places are now closed.
  • Per the DEM evacuation plan, we are currently staying put. This may seem counterintuitive, but there are only two roads in or out of Waikiki and those need to be kept clear for emergency vehicles and those people who actually need to evacuate.
We are moving Karen's mom's car and possibly mine as well.

News is keeping people informed and the panic levels are relatively low at the moment. People are being good about staying at home and not freaking out. First wave hits in a few hours, so we'll see where things go from there.

As long as we have power and Internet, I'll post here and try to get things on either YouTube or Facebook.
