Hawaii Evacuation Zones. After the 8.8 magnitude earthquake rocked Chile several countries were warned of an expected Tsunami that was to hit. Hawaii was said to be one of the worst in the entire pool.
Sirens have now run through out Hawaii to warn people who are living or visiting that a tsunami is about to hit soon. 11:19am is the official time that has been given for the first impact. Â People are being advised to find higher ground and get as far away from the coastal areas as possible.
Waikiki’s popular beaches have been abandoned and to avoid grid locks and other problems people are not going to be evacuated from the area but set up in the third floors above several hotels around the place.
Many are stocking up on supplies because no one knows exactly how much damage will be seen when the Tsunami finally hits or for how long the wreckage will ensue. Emergency efforts are underway currently and there is a close watch being kept on the weather.
The International Airport has also been closed down for the moment. Evacuation Zones have been set up all over the Island for people to retreat to. For more information on where safe zones have been set up people can check out the official Civil Defense Tsunami Evacuation Zones site:
