Earthquake 1

Long Line

No Ice at Safeway

I don’t have too many images since Honolulu did not suffer any damage (as far as I know). After the power went out islandwide, there were long lines at all retail places that were open and things like batteries and ice ran out quickly. The earthquake was measured at 6.6 on the Richter scale.

I’ll be adding a couple more entries later today.

    Hey all,
    Look at the banner ad at the bottom of the screen… http://www2.crazyshirts.com/index.cfm,

    Crazy Shirts, a local t-shirt company right here in Hawaii, takes the first opportunity to exploit a natural disaster that affected so many Kama’aina and tourists alike by selling damned shirts…on the site and in the stores…pathetic.

    This actually really bothers me, as it’s in poor, poor taste. If you have time, please send them a message/email via their company’s site: http://www2.crazyshirts.com/emailus.cfm and let them know that this shirt should be pulled from shelves and their site!

    The commercialization of the earthquake does not bother me. Back in the 1992 I beleive there were T-shirts sold to say “I survived Hurricane Iniki.”
