Hopefully only minor damage and life goes on. Been through numerous earthquakes in my day, still I would prefer an earthquake over something like Katrina any day, only because you don't know wheb it's going to hit, whereas a hurricane you know days ahead and nothing can be done.

There should not be any injuries, or structural damage or power loss.

Only interior stands at supermarkets or at homes rattled a bit, a bit of a mess but that's it. There have been three or four 6 point Richter earthquakes in Argentina recently, which is more than usual, but if the building codes in Hawaii are as strong as here or I would think the western US then there should be no problems.

Japan gets these kind of earthquakes like every two weeks compared to the rest of the world, nothing happens there!

6.6 and above that's the threshhold between a big scare and a more unfortunate event.

Aftershocks reported. 6.3 considered severe. Live interview with Ellen Prager, earthquake expert, Fox News Channel.

Electricity knocked out, then restored, then knocked out again.

No tsumani warning.

(Personal comments: Recall, earthquake reported some days ago near Japan. Area is part of "ring of fire". Speculative: connection to North Korea test? Did test occur in fault area setting off chain reaction?)

That isn't true. You can evacuate and coordinate recovery efforts before the storm makes landfall.

Katrina became tragedy that it was because those measures were not effectivly taken, not because nothing could be done.

The news people are sure flapping their lips about tsunami. I think five different experts have told them there is no tsunami risk. Yet, they keep yapping about it.

I'd be more concerned about volcanoes being shaken back to life, especially Kilauea.

The Big Island is Hawaii. Oahu is where HNL is.

I've heard that power is out on three islands: Hawaii, Oahu, and Maui.

That's not good. Especially with the number of tourists that are probably there right now. I wonder how many of them have never felt an earthquake before.
