Valuable info provided by NOAA's Pacific Tsunami Warning Center
The threat of a tsunami wreaking havoc on the people and infrastructure of Hawaiian island shores has passed! We dodged a bullet!!
Authorities confirmed that a tsunami generated by the 8.8 earthquake off Chile did indeed hit the Hawaiian island chain, reaching the Big Island first with diminished effects as it headed N/NW.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrationâ€™s â€œPacific Tsunami Warning Centerâ€ is fully prepared for this type of event, (even though the last state-wide tsunami warning was over 25 years ago). Warnings were issued approximately 14 hours in advance of the tsunamiâ€™s arrival on 2/27/2010. Plans were administered immediately by agencies designed to protect and provide safety. Residents and visitors were kept out of harmâ€™s way!
Just one more great reason that Hawaii is your SOLID choice for living in paradise. You may be one of the many savvy real estate buyers who place great value on government safety and protection under US authority. In Hawaii, we say, â€œLucky we live Hawaiiâ€. We can also be proud to say, â€œLucky we live good oleâ€™ US of Aâ€!!
