2010 Kauai tsunami tourists ignore no parking sign.

The preparation and anticipation of observing a tsunami was both fun and exciting, but I am relieved this passed without any damage or loss of life.  My experience was a good one.  All of the people who I had encountered prior and during the event were wonderful.  I was at Wal-Mart in Lihue just after 6am and the place was bustling.  There were plenty of supplies on the shelves, it seemed that every cashier was open and everyone in the store was cheerful and friendly. The cashier told be they opened the store early because customers were waiting outside.  I commend them for excellence in customer service.  I watched the local news reports as the first evidence of the tsunami appeared in Hilo.  I was impressed at the great job, local authorities did with evacuation.  The news reports were concise, informative and accurate.

Onlookers await the 2010 Hawaiian Tsunami from Kukuiolono Hill, Kauai.

If this had been a major event, I would think the only lives lost would be those of fools, some of whom remained on and near beaches and one featured in the news wading in the waves.  These were not people who felt they needed to protect their property.  These were thrill seekers, who put themselves in danger and ultimately endanger the lives of those in public service whose job it is to protect them.  Their actions disgust me.
