OMG! People slow down. This was just a test of the new Pacific Tsunami Early Warning System. This was the first tsumani tracked by this system of buoys and sensors floating between South America and Hawaii. Good Job, guys. They were able to predict the arrival of a tsunami within 1-2 hours. Not bad at all. However, they still can not predict the anything else pertanent to tsunami warning. This should not have been a tsunami warning. It should have been and advisory. I am not a scientist or do I have any credibility whatsoever regarding natural disasters. I am also not a blind follower, either. I am disappointed with Hawaii News and residents. They were collectively ignorant and submissive. No questions asked; they just bought all the gas and water and evacuated to higher ground. I just sat here about 2 miles from the coast and watched the most horrific Newscast, I have ever seen. The level of stupidity and lack of information regarding the tsunami was more devastating than any natural disaster. I don't expect the news to inform me of anything but innacurate weather forecasts and boring stories. With a Tsunami Warning, I expect to be informed by qualified and intelligent people. And, IF YOU DO NOT KNOW, THAN TELL ME YOU DON'T KNOW. Don't just desperately look at the teleprompter and repeat he same moronic and robotic rhetoric. It was pathetic. The residents were just as bad. No one was told to evacuate. But, all my neighbors left for supplies and gas and many went up to Red Hill. There were no injuries or damage from this Tsunami. There was minor damage from the car accidents and the unnecessary traffic. I guess I am thankful for the day off from work. Next time, I am going to make a fortune.
