There was an deadly earthquake and tsunami this morning in Samoa, but here everything seems to be normal. The islands were under tsunami advisory but Hawaii Civil Defense recently lifted it and it seems that things are going to be alright in our corner of the Pacific. I have seen numerous tsunami PSAs on the television since I moved here. Mostly its just telling Hawaii residents what the warning signs of a tsunami are and that Hawaii is long overdue for some major ecological disaster. Yikes.
This hits closer to home, so to speak, than most other news stories because I know that we know familes from Samoa who were most likely affected by this tragety. Prayers out.
