looking across kealakekua bay
In case you haven't already heard, there was a huge earthquake in Hawaii earlier today. One of the spots that was severely affected was the cliff in Kealakekua Bay near where I stayed during my visit there.
According to CNN and Fox news, it sounds like there are no fatalities. It's mostly property and structural damage around the islands. People are calling in to news stations, sending emails, writing blog entries, and posting photos, so I'm guessing that, other than being shaken up and maybe stranded for a bit, people are doing ok.
Best wishes go out to everyone on the islands. Hope things get back to normal soon!
