Mink Hippie and I were in the dollar store about an hour ago and it felt like a truck suddenly hit the building. I love this story that just showed up on honoluluadvertiser.com Mainly because it goes into some detail about how one of our neighbors was in the bathroom…I’m afraid that wasn’t the quake you felt Sir, it was the result of bad Mexican food from Los Garcia.
Quake off Big Island rattles Islands
A minor earthquake with an estimated magnitude of 3.2 was felt throughout the Islands at 8:10 tonight.The quake appeared to be centered between Maui and the Big Island but was felt “in Hawai’i Kai from Pearl Center and Ala Moana,” said Dr. Robert Cessaro, a geophysicist at the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center at ‘Ewa Beach.
“It appears to have some depth to it,” Cessaro said. “That’s why it was felt through the Islands.”
Alan Lloyd, a retired engineer, was in his bathroom in Lanikai when “I heard a gradual increasing roar, like a heavy truck going by then a ll of a sudden there was a boom like the truck had a collision.”
