SReporter Nappi Evacuated In Maui

Spokesman-Review reporter Rebecca Nappi spent the night in a rented van with family members early Friday after being evacuated Thursday night from the South Maui condominium where the family was staying. A moderate tsunami wave hit the Hawaiian coast in the early morning hours following a devastating earthquake in Japan. “It was really freaky,” she said of the experience. The evacuation notice came by telephone about 10:30 p.m. to Nappi and seven other members of her family who are on a week-long vacation at Wailea/Mike Prager, SR. More here.

Question: Have you heard from someone you know who's directly affected by the tsunami?
