Tsunami waves begin to reach Hawaii, no immediate reports of damage

The first tsunami waves arrived on Oahu, but there were no initial reports of damage.

Gerard Fryer, a scientist with the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, said waves may continue to come ashore for six or seven hours.

Gages recorded a 1.6 foot wave at about 10:30 p.m. Kahului Harbor also recorded a similar sized wave about 20 minutes later. Smaller waves were recorded in Waianae and Hanalei.

“The tsunami arrived about when we expected it should. It was a little smaller than we expected,” Fryer said.
