Sirens went off about five minutes ago.

Lahaina grocery stores and gas stations jammed.  Typical for this kind of event.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Our other home is in west Maui... we're in Houston right now.  I gathered that the original risk was Kahului... I guess this means everyone is at risk .

      the wave will pass by West Maui but bounce off Molokai and Lanai.  That will give us some pumping but shouldn't be as bad as what's expected in Kahului.

      Where's your place in West Maui?  If you're above 50 feet of the mean tide line you should be okay.

        Between Lahaina and Kahana...  We are literally ocean front but slightly elevated from coast.  The  good news is that we're not there right now... Had to come back to the mainland for work and didn't intend on going back until December. So we're safe.  But I worry about friends.  No reply from anyone I have texted.  Thanks for telling me about the sirens; that means everyone is aware of what's happening.  I would think Molokai and Lanai would provide some protection.  Where are you in west Maui?

          will reflect the wave back towards Maui.

          I'm in Kaanapali Hillside at about 200 feet.

            But hillside.  That's good.  Stay safe.  We probably shop at the same supermarket on Lower H road.  When next we are in Maui we should have a Kossack mini meet up.

                  Wouldn't that prevent people from evacuating?

                  BTW,  I love that farmer's market ... it is walking distance from my place and part of my regular Saturday morning routine when I am on the island.  Best pineapple cream cheese ever.

  •  Some warnings closer to earthquake dropped--BUT (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    Delilah

    listen to the local warnings: meanwhile, based on the rough models currently available, waves between 3 to 6 feet are expected in Hawaii (this could be quite different in reality--I hope no one thinks the warning should not have been issued if the waves that appear are small, as may happen).

    Based on current knowledge,  fairly effective widespread vertical evacuations have been ordered for their tsunami warning.
    They still have a bit over an hour to evacuate: first of waves expected at 10:28 p.m Hawaii time.

    Thanks, RodSerling, for your link above to the news livefeed!

    Very large earthquake in an unpopulated area off western Haida Gwaii (formerly Queen Charlotte Islands). Felt as far away as Grande Prairie, AB, to the east and Vancouver, BC, to the south and east. (No, I didn't notice it.) Significant after-shocks to 5.5. No tsunami damage in B.C. reported so far.

    Second largest earthquake this year after Banda Aceh, Indonesia, earthquakes in April.
