- Tonga, Tahiti, and the Cook Islands instituted emergency evacuation plans.
- The wave size predictions have decreased but the length of activity expected is still the same.

Hawaiian Airlines is not changing or cancelling any flights except ones in to Hilo because the Hilo airport is closed right now. Honolulu International Airport is still open.
A reminder to Hawaii residents: FOLLOW EVACUATION PROCEDURES! The department of emergency management for your county as well as statewide civil defense makes decisions on what areas needs to evacuate and when. If everyone evacuates at once, all of the roads will be jammed.
Information on local evacuation procedures is in the front of the phone book (includes contact numbers, maps, and other important information).
We are now about 1.5 hours away. More updates to follow, assuming we keep power.
