reply to post by dreamfox1 Could it be possible for a TSUNAMI splitting that island in Hawaii (sorry cant remember its name)? You know the one with the big trench right across it thats getting bigger all the time.

Getting reports of people fighting at a gas station in Ewa Beach. 19 minutes till the wave hits and people are going at each others throats.
I was just driving a minute ago and it's pandemonium at gas stations and grocery stores.
Imagine what it's going to be like when a real emergency hits here.
No hope for people here during an actual situation
