Tohoku-Oki Tsunami in Hawaii: A Report from the Field

A neighbor of mine returned this week from a vacation in Maui, Hawaii.  She sent me this description:

"We were in Maui when the earthquake in Japan hit. We were evacuated from our condo on the coast. When we returned 6 hours later, we found that the ground floor units had flooded. We were on the 2nd floor. Also very interesting was watching the ocean as at times the ocean was 300 feet or so back from normal, then it would be at normal distance but calm. It took a while until the ocean began to look like normal. I can't imagine being in awful for them."
