Yesterday there was a very big earthquake in Japan.
This resulted in a devastating tsunami in Japan.
The wave was expected to reach Kauai at about 3:00 am this morning. We met at Port Allen at 1:30 am to get the boats out of the Harbor. The largest waves came by in the night.
This is the same finger pier about 2 minutes after high water.
Fortunately for Hawaii this Tsunami did not do much damage here.
It did continue across the California where waves up to 6 feet were reported in California.
Here are some pictures showing two of the highs that I observed and the lowest that I observed. I missed the largest waves by over an hour. I heard that the whole dock was about 6 inches underwater during the largest waves.
