Default Shake and Quake!

Long bit of shaking here in Mililani about five minutes ago! Probably ten seconds of wobbling... long enough for me to go from amused to concened, capped off with a good shudder that prompted me into shuffling all the kids into the backyard for a minute. Definitely one of the strongest I've felt since leaving the Big Island, and certainly unexpected in the middle of the island.

Power blinked out. Posting via cell phone (that there's still service is a good sign... the rest of the world is still out there!) Was trying to link to the USGS earthquake page for "Did You Feel It?" reports. Anyone with power wanna help?

Only now realizing we don't have any battery powered radios... going out to the car to check for warnings.

Exciting morning! Kids are bouncing off the walls. Odd how a seismic event (and our adrenaline) can have an effect on 'em even if the two boys didn't notice a thing.

Anybody with pets should also be having a swell time. Last time we had a huge quake up here (over 6 on the Richter scale), one of our usually very mellow popoki totally went ballistic, climbed on top of one of the computer desks and, wild-eyed and bushy tailed, proceeded to pee all over the floor. Later, in retelling the story, it became humorous, but at the time, Shimai was totally freaked out. They say animals have a 6th sense about natural disasters.

We're heading into town for Mass in Manoa... As of the airport, no lights at all since we left Mililani. Odd to see the tower dark. Might be awfully quiet on HT for a while.

From the USGS website: at least 11 quakes have been recorded, all off the coast of the Big Island and Maui. And this. Looks like they were fairly shallow quakes. Preliminary reports say one of the quakes registered 6.3 on the Richter scale.

We felt both earthquakes too! In fact my son started freaking out as it woke him up out of bed. We are on the windward side and our power went out not too long after the 2nd quake.

Here it is:

12 miles NE of Kailua-Kona 7:07:51 HST magnitude 4.6

34 miles N of Kailua-Kona 7:14:11 HST magnitude 4.9

14 miles NNE of Kailua-Kona 7:29:05 HST magnitude 3.6

First one's actually under the Big Island, the other two were under water off the coast.

We made it into town... no lights anywhere. Two firetrucks roaring past. High rises have clusters of people milling about outside. People seem to forget driving protocol when the street lights are out.

Mass in the dark. No amplification. Kinda neat.

Report from Honaunau, Hawaii

GOOD GRAVY !!!

20+ seconds of major rock & roll. Biggest I've ever felt in my 15 years living on the rock. I guessed it at 5.0. House moved almost 2 inches and nearly off some of the pier blocks. Dogs are in "weird" mode. My oldest is standing on two steps with her ass pointed up in the air, and her head hanging low. Funny. We got pictures down, and stuff flew out the cupboards. Clean up time.

Walked to the store, and drivers said rock slides up and down Mamalahoa Hwy south of here. Have not seen a firetruck or police car yet headed south.

Hope everyone is all right.

Hope everyone's ok! I've only experienced one earthquake before, and that was a wimpy 2.2 or so It was enough for us to wonder what the heck monster truck was driving down our street and shaking the house for 5 seconds or so, but that was about it.

Manoa Safeway was open and getting swamped.

Sounds like KSSK is now the main information outlet.

Lingle was in Waikoloa (TV fell off the dresser in her hotel room), and Aiona and the cabinet are at CD in Diamond Head.

Malama Solomon calling in from the Big Island... landslides, roads closed, roof damage (Kona hospital, Wal-Mart), hotels evacuated...

Proof of the value of local radio... for a while most stations were offline or running on autopilot. Perry and Price are doing a great job.

Landlines are crazy busy over there. Tutu got a hold of mom but my father's side, I haven't heard from at all. Their cell phone voice mail boxes are automatically answering.

I just spoke to my mom about half an hour ago.....they were staying at the Pacific Beach hotel for her class reunion. They were on the 15th floor when it happened....my dad felt the building sway. Since there was no electricity, they walked down to the lobby and were told that the elec would be out all day. They then walked back up to the 15th floor, packed their bags and walked down. They're doing fine and were headed home...

More from KSSK: We're a top story on Mainland news networks... Pleas to stay off roads, phones (oops!), and to conserve water... Stories of price gouging in Waianae ($15 per pack of batteries)... various callers plugging their stores being open for business... Laments over no football on TV... People calling to provide updates and reassurances in other languages (Vietnamese, Spanish, pidgin!)...

Just like the freeway shutdown, a heck of a test of our emergency systems' preparedness. some conflicting reports, some official offices with less complete information than residents calling in...

An interesting Sunday!

Very weak, albeit unusual shaking on Kauai this morning at around 7:10 AM. Nothing affected here, but I can't get a dang NFL game on TV. NLCS game better be on at 2.
