Tsunami Surge

Click on the image above to view the video (15MB in size)

The earthquake in Japan sent an ocean surge headed our way and although it took a few hours to get here it was quite a sight to see Kamakahonu Bay being filled and emptied as the ocean surge came in and out. The channel looked like a swift river as water either went in or out. And beachboy Trent Palacat can maybe claim fame to having surfed a tsunami?

I wasn’t there for the initial surges which were quite high, maybe four feet or so but the ones I saw when I got there were maybe three feet or so in height difference. It was like a mini version of the tsunami videos I’ve seen where the ocean just gets higher.

Click on the above image to see a larger version of the surge in/out split image. The two photos shot about a minute or two apart.

Something about the 15th of the month, my days off and earthquakes…
