Another tsunami watch - 2 quakes near Vanuatu

Two earthquakes, 7.8 & 7.3 near Vanuatu in the South Pacific. Hawaii is under tsunami watch as of 1:36 pm local time.

Poor Samoa is under a tsunami warning - as if those people have not had enough to deal with......

Everyone stay safe,

Aloha from Kaua'i!

I have heard absolutely nothing this afternoon about it either!

Weather is grey, threatening like a thunder storm and HUMID and sultry...like the start of a bad novel!

I agree -- terribly humid today! Not typical Hawaii weather at all --at least what we've experienced on past trips, given that we don't live here (wouldn't mind that, though!)

Aloha from Kaua'i!

I haven't spoken to probably a single person in the last couple of days here who hasn't been complaining about the heat, humidity and today....vog.

It isn't expected to last more than a day more or so - but the lack of tradewinds, high humidity and slightly higher temps - definitely make for days that I like to call "3 shower days"!!!! Probably the one time of year that I welcome a/c when I can get it - it doesn't cool down in my hale until around 8pm - just about....now in fact. It does seem to usually happen in October, and only for a few days - at least in my experience.

Wela nui (very hot)!!!

Malama Pono,

Janet
