I'll be waiting to hear from you too wasabi! If I recall where you live you were pretty darn close to the hardest hit area - I hope everyone is ok wasabi - saying a prayer.

IC - you ok??????

...and a fairly new member - love2cook (I think that's close anyway) - we're thinking about you too!

I know we have some others from Hawaii - I hope all is well!

Thinking of you Wasabi!
You can close your eyes to the things you do not want to see, but you can't close your heart to the things you do not want to feel.

I think the biggest problem for Wasabi now is lack of power. There are no reports of death or major injuries on any of the islands. Significant damage in some areas to homes and businesses as well. CNN is covering it live and continually.

I finally heard from my sister in Oahu about 6pm est ( 12pm Oahu/pacific time). They have no power, but it's still day time so they are hoping to have power back before night falls. They have a radio so they are hearing the news. She mentioned how many stores (so they've heard) are price gouging. They might go out today to get supplies if needed. Oahu has been saturated with rain since September so there is a threat of land slides, moreso than on Hawaii which has been dry, which is good news for anyone in Hawaii. No threats of a sunami thank god!
