Preparing for Hurricane Flossie

IMG_18441024
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.

Yes, we pray for your safety too. I saw that Flossy on tv last night and your big island just ahead of it and it looked like a whole continent moving your way. It was big and they said ten inches of rain or more. You will need more than an umbrella. Be safe not sorry.
