I just want to point out how unprepared for an emergency Hawaii is

The Tsunami that never happened showed me just how fragile everything here is.

-Within 1 hour of the sirens going off every gas station I saw was packed FULL of cars.
-Reports on the radio of fights breaking out at gas stations
-North Shore sirens reported not working by radio callers
-Panic at the grocery stores
- 4 Serious car accidents in ONE HOUR due to people texting while evacuating

I've been saying it since I got here. Hawaii is a powder keg just waiting to go off. It's unsustainable to have huge cities like this here, everyone is pacified with bread and circuses from Caesar, and our infrastructure is falling apart.

If this had been an actual disaster, I bet there would have been looting within a few hours.

The fear of something bad happening VS something bad actually happening. People do react differently in those very different situations. My experience with disaster did see some looting but people helping people was more the norm. (Rebuild Joplin!)

What did you do to make the potentially threatening situation better?

I think this also goes to show how mentally immature we currently are. How totally unprepared we are for the possible 'truth'.

Imagine a more extreme scenario, killer asteroid, yellowstone on the verge, etc. We couldn't handle it.

Like it or not, TPTB have a right to withhold some information from us.

and its not even DENSELY populated like the Northeast coastal area is.

just imagine, the death toll from Sandy even if not totally destructive, especially with POWER LINES everywhere
