Doug texted us all this morning: “Hawaii being evacuated due to tsunami.”
We rushed to check the news. The biggest earthquake to hit Japan in 140 years triggered a 10-metre tsunami that pounded the country and prompted evacuations and advisories along the Pacific coast. Coastal areas in Hawaii were being evacuated.
Since, the tsunami warning for the Hawaiian Islands have been downgraded; the islands reportedly have suffered no major impact from the event. Some of our dancers, who are scheduled to head out tomorrow, are proceeding as planned.
Our thoughts and condolences go out to those in Japan.
