We're all fine over here. The news that you got on the mainland made the whole thing sound about a thousand times worse than it was - like we'd sunk into the ocean or fallen of the face of the earth or something.
The worst thing that happened on Oahu (where I live in Honolulu) was that the power went out a little after it happened (about 7:15 or so) and was out all day into the night. My electricity came back up a little before 9 pm. When it came up, I turned on the tv and turned to CNN. They were running the story about the quake. Boy, did they magnify it.
When the electricity came on in my neighborhood, you could hear alot of people yelling "yay!"
My co-worker's electricity didn't come on until 3:15 this morning.
I think we ought to get solar panels to generate our electricity! We have lots of sun here.
