Tsunami threat fades as waves forecast to top eight feet never arrive
from The Honolulu Advertiser
Dozens of ships headed to open water, 40,000 to 50,000 locals and tourists scrambled to safety and high ground, and communities from Hilo to Waikīkī transformed into instant ghost towns yesterday as the Islands braced for a tsunami that rolled in as merely an odd ocean surge. There were no reports of damage or injuries from the tsunami born from the disastrous 8.8 magnitude quake that rumbled across Chile, killing 214 people.
