Tsunami heads for Hawaii

I just read that Hawaii is under a Tsunami warning. The first wave is expected to reach Hawaii in about 7 hours (4 PM EST).

Please join me in praying for the safety of my blog-buddies Esther and Sarah, and their families and friends, and all in the path of this Tsunami.

UPDATE:  Denise has family members currently in the earthquake zone in Chile.  They're safe, but there are an awful lot of people who are injured and homeless now.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help, pray for them.

Praying for them as well as for the people of Chile...and Haiti. The news said the plates in the earth shifted 10 feet under Chile, which is huge in geological measurements...I cannot believe the forces of nature at work.

THanks we so appreciate it!

I think we on Ford Island will be okay. As long as we have electricity I'll be on and let people know we're okay etc.

For your other readers: Ford Island is in Pearl Harbor (way up in the harbor). Should be safe enough up here (we are not going to get hit with a wave, per se, but we may see some mild flooding and power outage. Just don't know for sure.
Again, thanks for the prayers.

Thank you! The waves seem to be much smaller than we feared. We are still waiting to make sure that we are out of harm's way. God has once again protected Hawaii from a major disaster.
