1. I live in Hawaii
2. People were freaking out, and by 4:30am my parents were already packing their bags to evacuate because they live in an evacuation zone.
6am: I wake up to the sound of the sirens. Wonder why the sirens are going off, since it's only Saturday, and the siren test day is Monday. Reality: Siren sounding was completely lost on me as I figured they had the wrong day and went back to sleep.
8am: My house was overrun by parents and 2 dogs while my cat and husband continue to sleep. (Eff them! I was woken up at 7am!)
11am: My grandmother and brother enter the picture, and my normally calm house was a mess of noise.
12pm: We watch one little camera pointed at one portion of the Big Island. This was it! This was the big one! OMG this is going to be crazy!
CNN reports: Tsunami Surges Into Hawaii! Tsunami Hits the Hawaiian Island Chain AHHHH!!!!
