Oh my, I forgot Iron chef was back in Hawaii. He was in Los Angeles I think, but then recently moved back to Hawaii, or maybe Oahu as Dove pointed out. I hope everyone on the Islands are safe!

My thoughts and prayers are going out to you. I can't imagine what you are going through with an earthquake. Hopefully your power will be on soon.
We were without power for 1 week after a tornado, I will never forget that.

Sister called again, power is back on in her area of Oahu, so hopefully we'll start hearing from other members of DC soon, once they get internet connection back up. Just phone service for now and that was intermittent, maybe 1 minute at a time before we were disconnected. There are flood warnings for Oahu, and it was pouring rain when I talked to her.

Hooray! Just got a PM from wasabi. She says she's okay and the power has just been turned on. Our prayers have been answered.

ALOHA! Thank you my DC family for you kind thoughts and prayers. All's well here. The power was just turned on after almost 10 hours. To make matters worst, a storm front is passing and it made for a wet and humid day. But thanks to the Lord, there were no deaths and a few minor injuries and no tsunami was activated. There are some damages on the Big Island where the the earthquake originated. Let me tell you, being shook out of bed with an earthquake is something I don't ever want repeated. So nice to back.

It's nice to see you back Wasabi! I see the earthquake hasn't taken the wiggle out of your hula! How did Koapaka weather the earthquake? Did she run to the doorway the way she should? (hmmmm, why does DC have a cat, bunny, pig, and chicken smilie but not a dog??)

Koapaka sleeps in the living room, so when the quake hit, I was still in bed. When I ran out to check on him, he was hiding under the sofa. He's just fine, thank you.
