  • Turn on the weather channel or hit their website - they'll have the most coverage of it because they won't need to cut away for any other news stories.

  • CNN and the weather channel are talking about it. Later this afternoon it is supposed to hit there.

  • The waves are supposed to be between 10 and 20 feet, and they are saying it should hit 15 hrs after the earthquake. It happened at about 3:30, so about 6:30 is when the tsunami should hit.

  • It is expected to hit at 11 am Hawaii time, that is 4 pm eastern time. They don't know how big it will be, it may be just a few inches or it could maybe be big. He may be helping people evacuate to higher ground, but I'm sure they will make sure he is safe.

  • I'll bet he's helping people evacuate. They've had plenty of waring, so I'm sure it will be fine. He's military, so he's been trained to handle things like this. The Weather Channel and CNN are probably your best bets.

  • I haven't heard anything either except one friend said something in their facebook status, and now this. We have a friend who's son is going to college there, along with his g/f. So, now we're worried a bit for them, don't know what island their on or anything and his folks aren't answering their phones :S
