Preparing for Hurricane Flossie
We happened to come upon this grave site on Sunday with an interesting but sad history. A 1946 8.5 earthquake off the Aleutian Islands near Alaska generated a Tsunami that reached heights of 45 feet on the Big Island, as it passed through the whole island chain. The lack of a Tsunami warning system attributed to the high death toll of at least 96 people and caused millions of dollars in damages. A total of six were killed on this island (O'ahu), three of them were children from the Kanakanui Ohana of Kahana Valley. This grave site marks there final resting place.
As Hurricane Flossie approaches close to the Big island of Hawai'i, located South East of O'ahu, we pray for the safety of all.
