Smaller Big Island

This was taken this morning a few minutes after the big earthquake that rocked Hawaii. As you can see a large chunk of the pali at Kealakekua Bay gave way, and splashed down in the bay, sending up a huge dust cloud.

 

We shook very violently here, and our local hospital is damaged, the highway has boulders all over it, and our power was just restored. Everyone I know here is ok and I feel very lucky for that, although we sustained some minor property damage. My thoughts are with all of Hawaii, and I'm hoping no one was injured or killed.
