My cousin called me about a half-hour ago to tell me that there might be another earthquake here in Hawaii on the Big Island tomorrow morning. I missed the 6 o'clock news, but will try to catch it on the 10 o'clock news. That sux man!!! I'm supposed to pick up my niece on the Big Island tomorrow afternoon. :thumbsup:
I hope all goes well! :flowers: :inlove:
If anyone heard anything, please let me know :trumpet:
I will try to keep you updated! :cool:

Oh Tink, what a scary thing!! I hope hope hope the quake doesn't happen!! (I didn't realize that scientists could yet forewarn about quakes - guess I really need to brush up on the latest scientific discoveries!).
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

tink536! Please be safe there! WOW. That's so scary. I hope it doesn't turn out to be anything serious.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

They were saying something happening on Mauna Loa could trigger an earthquake. There was two last month (consecutive I think) on the Big Island & it knocked out the power here on Oahu (I didn't mind no lights, but no computer! I wanted to die :thumbsup: :flowers: ) They were saying its supposed to be a 7 or so. I'm hoping not, I really want to see my niece before Christmas!! :inlove:
In about twenty minutes I should know for sure.
Fingers crossed! :trumpet:

Its a hoax, people that heard about it only heard it on the radio. There wasn't even anything on the news. I missed the 10 o'clock.
Here's a link about the "earthquake rumors"!
http://www.khnl.com/Global/story.asp?S=5730947
:thumbsup:
I guess people have nothing better to do! I heard it was supposed to be a 7.0 earthquake, but the articles says the rumor was a 9.0.
I guess some people need to get a life! :inlove:

(I didn't realize that scientists could yet forewarn about quakes - guess I really need to brush up on the latest scientific discoveries!).


Me neither, if not, we would've known when the last 3-4 earthquakes hit before it happened! :cool:

I guess everything's clear, just wanted to pick up my monkey! :flowers: :trumpet:

Sure glad it was a hoax tink356. Naturally we were all worried of what could happen.
I like a joke, if they are harmless and don't cause anybody undue stress.
This hoax was "SICK". :thumbsup: Only an absolute fool would do this sort of crap.
Old people could have a heart attack,scareing them like this.
Like they say "there's an idiot born everyday"

Just an FYI.... In general, earthquakes are not predictable over the short term. They may be able to make a prediction such as 'There is an 60% chance of an magnitude 5 or larger earthquake in a certain area over the next 50 years...." But they can't get much closer.

Thanks for the info Derfram. I did not notice anyone here in town panicking, no one in my house was! :thumbsup:
I just didn't want to be stuck in Kona with no place to stay! :trumpet: :)

Same here DSTM! Some people just take things too far. :P
My stepdad thought someone did an 'Orson Welles' & that cracked me up, thinking of a martian invasion! :inlove:

But thank you all for your kind words & wisdom! :cool:
Those who started this hoax should be publicly whipped...kidding but not! :flowers:

Wife and I spent a wonderful week in Kailua-Kona last December. I'm sure she would be happy to be back there again even if she didn't have any place to stay. The beach sand is soft enough......

No insult to the place was intended! :inlove:
My cousin is there and I really don't need to deal with her bs! :flowers:
Two hours with her is bad enough! (Love her, but too much drama! :trumpet: :cool: )
