Earthquake Hawaii (Oahu?)

As I speak, there is an earthquake somewhere in Hawaii.

My building has been shaking for about 30 seconds.

The shaking just stopped.

This is by far the most I have felt an earthquake on Oahu since I moved here 7 years ago.

Dogs were barking.

Car alarms going off.

My friend up in Pauoa felt it and her items on her shelf fell off.

She says her two cats are scared and hiding.

I hate earthquakes, but if you have to be in one, then Hawaii is the place to be. Hope everyone is ok and those of you there now are all safe.

Power went out over the entire island just after I posted the message.

Just got power back a few minutes ago. We are about 9 1/2 hours since the earthquake & only 14% on Oahu have had power restored. So I feel lucky.

I'm just starting to get some info.

Some roads are (or were) closed on other islands, especially Big Island & Maui. Road to Hana was closed.

Some homes in Manoa Valley on Oahu damaged.

Some landslides reported.

I kind of feel sorry for tourists who were in highrise hotels in Waikiki. I don't know how many of the hotels have emergency generators, but I bet some people had a rough time getting up & down.

Airports cancelled or delayed flights.

I'll have to watch the news tonight to get info.

Things pretty much back to normal on Maui. Power was out for about 4 hours in Kihei. Some rock slides here & there but most roads are fine.
