Tsunami!

The anticipated tsunami which was generated by the 8.8M earthquake off the coast of Chile was not big, but it sure did come to Hilo, Hawai'i! While looking at the TV news report of the live podcast of Moku Ola (Coconut Island), the water receded and rushed out and rushed back in, making the bay water look as though it was a gushing river.
The on-lookers were all over the hill tops with binoculars and folding chairs as they looked on to the yonder sea. Thankfully, it caused no damage and as one tsunami specialist commented on TV, it was the best kind of tsunami since it came, people could get a satisfaction at seeing a small but significant visual signs, but it caused no damage! Thank you Mother Nature for showing us the awesomeness of nature's energy and powers, and making us realize how vulnerable we are!

2月27日の土曜日11時過ぎにハワイ島ヒロ湾に到着予定の津波は・・・結果的にミニ津波でした!
義理の母の家は高台にあり、用事もあったついでに母の家でテレビのニュースで津波の到着を見守りました。本来は海を目の前にした絶壁にある家から津波の到着をみたかったけど・・・!
でもテレビで生中継されていたたココナッツ島(モク・オラ) を囲む水位の上昇具合から、やはり自然の力はすごい!の一言です。普段は穏やかなヒロ湾の水が一気に右へ流れ、かと思うと数分後には左へ流れ、まるで川が呼吸をしているかのような不自然な動きに沈黙・・・
兎にも角にも、なにも破壊されること無い「優しい」津波でよかった!
