All is OK here on Hawaii Island. We had some inundation in coastal areas. The Kona Brewfest is scheduled for tomorrow and the fest site is in one of those areas. Haven't heard if that is still on.
We are pleased to announce that the Kona Brewfest will be taking place in/near Pahoa, approximately 5 miles inland and at 375 ft above sea level
I heard someone in northern California was swept out to sea after going to "watch the waves". Dumas.
I have to say, it's hilarious to see the video of Japanese news anchors wearing hard hats on air, while no one in the background is wearing one.
The one headline we won't see out of alll of this mess is "Millions saved by engineering and government building codes". It's amazing what can be done when you combine resources with actual legal enforcement of things.
No one ever credits the engineers or regulations, they only ever get blamed.
