Hawaii braces for first tsunami wave

From CNN :

" Hawaii braced early Friday for waves of up to 10 feet emanating from the giant earthquake that struck Japan.

Communities along much of the U.S. West Coast were under tsunami warnings, too.
The first impact in Hawaii may be felt around 3:07 a.m. local time (8:07 a.m. ET), according to Hawaii State Civil Defense, which issued a tsunami warning.

The National Weather Service said the waves could hit Oregon and California between 7:15 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. local time (10:15-10:30 a.m. ET).

Honolulu is planning for several contingencies, because it is not certain how large the waves could be and where they may rush inland, Mayor Peter Carlisle told CNN."
