Earthquake hits Hawaii

Not a good time for my in-laws to be on vacation in Hawaii:

A strong earthquake shook Hawaii early Sunday, causing a landslide that blocked a major highway on Hawaii Island and knocking out power across the state, authorities said. Gov. Linda Lingle issued a disaster declaration for the entire state.


The Pacific Tsunami Center reported a preliminary magnitude of 6.5, while the U.S. Geological Survey gave a preliminary magnitude of 6.6. It was followed by several strong aftershocks, including one measuring a magnitude of 5.8, the Geological Survey said.

Also, please join me in praying that Kailani will get her power restored quickly.

    Did you get a chance to talk to them? It must be awful to be on vacation during a natural disater. I hope they were able to get food and water.

    Thanks again for the kind thoughts.
