    creepy for sure, strange things can happen in these events, lots of damage in a very small area and no damage everywhere else


    hopefully this will be a non-event

    As stated in the other thread, where I am at on Oahu, it looked like high tide/low tide going in very fast sucssesion......

    You really couldn't tell the difference when the waves were coming in for the high tide portion of it....

    Oh well......hopefully, stuff will start to open soon.....
