4.9 gave 'em a little rock and roll. Not much to worry about at that level. Lucky too it happened while most were sleeping.

The first one hit at 7:07 am and it was a 6.6 magnitude the second one hit at 7:14 am and that one was a 5.8 magnitude the last one hit at 10:35 am and that one was a 4.2 magnitude. The power is out on Maui, the big Island of Hawaii and Oahu, Lanai and Molokai still have power.

I was just reading this at CNN. Now those are bigger and more serious. I never knew Hawaii had earthquakes, or never gave it any thought. I lost an apartment in an earthquake, so I feel for them.

At least the newscasts have said there's no concern about a tsunami.

I've survived many earthquakes over the years. Worst was a 6.4 that
hit Tokyo while I was asleep in the Hilton hotel.

Noticed a car tag from HAWAII ON THE WAY HOME. Hubby even mentioned they were a long way from home.
