Hawaii tsunami advisory cancelled

Mar 12, 2011

HONOLULU, Hawaii - At approximately 11:26 am today, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center canceled the tsunami advisory for the Hawaiian Islands following the 8.9 earthquake that struck Japan sending a tsunami warning throughout the Pacific. The event passed with no major impact to Hawaii‚Äôs six major islands ‚Äď Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Maui, and Hawaii Island ‚Äď and with the exception of a section of Alii Drive in Kailua-Kona on Hawaii Island, it is business as usual across the state.

Travelers heading to Hawaii should continue do so with confidence after checking with their airline as there may be some temporary delays. Tourist attractions are open and functioning as normal, including the Polynesian Cultural Center and Battleship Missouri Memorial, to name a few.

Those traveling to Japan should call their airline carrier for the latest flight updates and information.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to the people of Japan, especially those who have lost loved ones in this tragic event.
