Tsunami Hits Molokai’s East End

The biggest earthquake in Japan’s history was so powerful it tilted the axis of the Earth, according to NASA, sending tsunami waves crashing across the Pacific Ocean last Thursday evening, March 10. The waves reached Molokai shores around 3:15 a.m. on Friday morning.

The 8.9 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Sendai, Japan at 7:46 p.m. local time, triggering more than forty Pacific nations to declare tsunami warnings, including Hawaii.
