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.

I watched Fox for a couple of minutes. It was really bad. They seemed to be stumbling all over themselves. Then I tried MSNBC, but they couldn't get their facts straight. They also flapped their traps about a possible tsunami long after a USGS spokesman told them on-the-air it wasn't going to happen.

So I switched to CNN. Very organized. Most of their coverage was and is the live simulcast of KITV-TV. It's much better to hear about a Hawaiian quake live from a Hawaiian TV station.

Pretty much impossible.

Hawaii is not part of the "ring of fire". It is located in the middle of the Pacific plate, while the "ring of fire" is the rim of the plate where it meets the surrounding plates. The vulcanism in Hawaii is attributed to what is called a "hot spot" and is in no way connected to any plate bounderys.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacific_Ring_of_Fire

From what i hear on CNN, the quake in hawaii is being attributed to the setteling of the island mass.

Reports that the Hana Highway is damaged and impassable . . . it's nearly impassable when it isn't damaged . . . Hana is a very cool place . . .hopefully they'll get the road cleared fairly soon.

Interesting at the amount of power lost - on several islands. Brings into question the quality of the power infrastructure there.

Also reports that HNL is only taking inbound flights. One reason, TSA can't screen outbound pax - no power. Airport son Maui and Hawaii are closed.

Heard from a friend on Oahu who said the quake was felt very strongly and shook the place quite a bit, while in comparison, Hilo felt less.

The only base on the Big Island is PTA . . . Pohakaloa Training Area in the center of the Island. It's got no power. Otherwise, on Oahu, Pearl and Schofield and others have spotty power supply. No damage.

So as far as the military infrastructure, nothing of consequence. The Hawaii National Guard's EOC is in the crater - I mean literally IN the crater at Diamond Head. They are functional, have emergency generators, a hospital (inside the crater walls), etc. etc. etc. I managed a tour of the place several years ago (it was good to be a CSM from DC  biggrin  ).

After Hurricane Iniki boiled through there the HI Guard really improved their EOC infrastructure. State of the art facilities and well protected inside that crater.

Yes, go through the tunnel into the Crater. There's a visitors center straight ahead of you after exiting the tunnel. The Hawaii Guards EOC is off to the right, and the entrance to Crater tunnels is off to the left (on an unmarked road).
