    Smile Earthquake in hawaii

    Advertisement



    707 am this morning we had a 6.8 earthquake which knocked all power in the state. There were also numerous aftershocks up to 5.4 scale. Up here in makakilo we had lost power almost immediatly, and lost water about 5 hours later. It is about 7 pm now and only about 25% of our island has power restored. I'm not sure about the other islands yet.

    wow first time I hear of it today but then again I only read the technology news and have been watching DVD's and cable tv. How are things going for you? How many aftershocks?

    I've been sitting in the dark for the past four hours now. If I didn't have my Blackberry I'd be going crazy.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~yeah for real, garran! I would have gone insane without it! I have an ac adapter in my car so every couple hours I would drive circles in my neighborhood with my BB and laptop plugged in so I could play my Halo and keep checking the news for updates! How long was your power out? Only 4 hours? It was closer to 12 in my area!

    Fiz, in Hawaii Kai power was out from 7am to 11:30pm.

    I never thought about doing that, but I'm gonna get myself an AC adapter just for these situations.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~not on my island, but there were a lot of landslides and sink holes on the big island. We got off pretty lucky!
