I'll keep your sister in my prayers Amber, as well as anyone else who might have been affected.

Amber, let us know when you hear from your sister, ok?

I called my brother in law in CT and my sister has just phoned him saying she is ok, but her cell kept cutting out, so I dont know anything more about what is going on over there. I hope Wasabi is ok too and anyone else from the islands. Hopefully my sister will call later and let us know whats happening over there.

Wasabi I hope you and your family are okay - especially Koapaka - Jolie gives Koapaka a big hug and kiss.

Let us know exactly what is going on.

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!
