Morning in Hawaii

Residents of Hawaii are waking up to tsunami warning in the wake of an 8.8 magnitude earthquake in Chile. People in the coastal regions are evacuating to higher ground. Wow. I'm an early riser myself, but it's hard to imagine starting a Saturday morning by running for the hills. At least the early warning system appears to be working effectively (those damn taxes) so far.
Too early to tell the extent of the damage and the loss of life in Chile, but it's certainly going to be huge. At least, in comparison to Haiti, Chile has a working infrastructure and a disaster response system in place.
