I know this is not "Breaking Political News", but this is "Breaking news". if in the wrong forum, my apologies.

I'm watching MSNBC right now. they are reporting that the entire state has no electricity.

just thought i would share. no reports coming out as to how much damage there has been as of yet. i hope no Tsunamis spread ourtwards from the epicenter. but from what i gather the center of the earthquake was in relatively shallow waters, which i believe may be a positive.

they are saying that 5% of the state has electricity. but the 5% is due to backup emergency generators.

One can only hope this doesnt involve North Korea and is a real earthquake.

Nevertheless, i feel very sorry for all there and hope they will be fine.

Am i irrational with my suspicion?

This is breaking news, although it belongs in Fragile Earth, where coverage of earthquakes belongs

They are saying it was located near Kona. One of the times I was in Hawaii we stayed in Kona (Haunted hotel!!!). It's a beautiful area but highly unstable. The volcano on the Big Island (where Kona is located) has been erupting for 20 years.

Seriously ... I'm surprised they don't have more big earthquakes considering that the big island is really just a big volcano.

The damage had to be considerable to knock out almost all electrical power. In fact, it did knock out all electricity because the 5% that they have is due to emergency generators. Without power there is going to be all kinds of problems that develop as we saw with Katrina.

USGS just revised the earthquake to a 6.6 magnitude.

Magnitude 6.6 - ISLAND OF HAWAII, HAWAII

Images Of Earthquake Damage -KITV Hawaii

Last earthquake close to this size was back in 1983.
Historical Hawaiian earthquake info


US Geological Survey Hawaiian Volcano Observatory

Kilauea Daily Update issued Oct 15, 2006 09:41 HST - Alert Level WATCH - Aviation Color Code ORANGE

Two powerful earthquakes occurred at 7:07 and 7:14 HST on the northwest side of Hawai`i Island. Damage reports continue to come in to Hawai`i County Civil Defense. Our monitoring networks suffered minimal damage and continue to operate.

Summary: There have been no significant changes in the past 24 hours. Kilauea volcano continues to erupt from the Pu`u `O`o vent on the East Rift Zone. Summit inflation centered in the south part of the caldera continues.

Lava is flowing through the PKK lava tube from its source on the southwest flank of Pu`u `O`o to the ocean. About 1 kilometer south of Pu`u `O`o, the Campout flow branches off from the PKK tube. The PKK and Campout systems feed two widely separated ocean entries named East Lae`apuki and East Ka`ili`ili, respectively. Both entries are located inside Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park.

Earthquakes are affected by magma movement....so....volcanoes in the area can blow depending on any additional pressure by the land on the magma below it.

Remember when the OJ Simpson trials were almost all that was on the news?

For almost an entire year it was broadcasted every day on most networks.

but, there were other stories as well that year.

one of great importance may have been overlooked.

I remember watching stories of GreenPeace boats ramming French military ships that were in the South Pacific conducting deep water nuclear tests above the faultline that rides the bottom of the Pacific, and up into the San Andreas Faultline via through Mexico.

The first underwater nuclear explosion happened.

3 days later an earthquake occured on the same faultline and killed hundreds in Mexico.

The second underwater nuclear explosion happened.

3 days later an earthquake occured on the same faultline and killed a few dozen people in Mexico.

The third underwater nuclear explosion happened.

3 days later a volcano erupted on the same faultline and resulted in a mudslide and earthquake that nearly demolished a fair sized village or town, in Mexico.

Coincidences????

who really cared enough to pay attention to it, everybody was distracted with the trial of OJ Simpson, which was obviously far more important than the French possibly causing the deaths of Mexicans from thousands of miles away.

MSNBC just started reporting the same thing 6.6. They are also reporting numerous aftershocks, last one 16 minutes ago.

Well, Esoteric, i hate to be so pesimistic, but its a possibility. I hope not.

I cant believe there are no casualties. Wow. They are very lucky.

More than likely power outages on adjacent islands were caused by rainfall.

Far as I know, each island has it's own generation resources.



Power at least partially knocked out on every island, said Civil Defense spokesman Lani Goldman. On Oahu, 95 percent of customers were without power, he said. Authorities said some of the power outages may have been due to heavy rainfall.



More information

I hate not having cable. I haven't heard a word of this on broadcast TV. You'd think that an earthquake would be sufficint to interrupt a football game.

I guess not, though.
