Today was a day most Hawaiians will never forget, the day when a devastating set of earthquakes hit the islands. As of now, the main quake was 6.6 according to the USGS. which put the time as 17:07:49 UTC today. From what I have seen on CNN , its almost as if I were looking at the same damage we suffered in the Loma Prieta quake of 1989. I feel for these folks, and hope that the aftershocks subside as soon as possible. I recall being almost more afraid of the wait for those innumerable aftershocks, its nerve racking.
Here is a link to the USGS website, in case you want more info on what they recorded for today’s earthquake along with information for the rest of world, most in real time. You can also sign up for email notifications, which is how I first heard about this today.
On the website for ABC in Hawaii, KITV, their coverage is reporting the following information as a running time-line of events on the following website.
