Hawaiian Tsunami in 1975on July 10, 2009 at 12:32 pm
On November 29, 1975, at 14:48 GMT, an earthquake occurring off the coastline of the Island of Hawaii. A close by felt tsunami was triggered by the earthquake, which had a surface-wave scale of 7.2, an epicenter of 19.3° N, 155.0° W, and a focal deepness of 8 km. The greatest missing was at Halape, a beach park at the base of a large precipice, on the land mass of Hawaii. At Halape, of the 32 campers 19 suffered injury and 2 died. It was the sounds of the lessening rocks from the cliff and the wobbly that cause the campers to awake and a few moved to a coconut grove that was closer to the ocean. The campers were awaken by a second quake that sent big boulders down the cliff and forced the rest of the campers to flee toward the sea. However, these campers were forced back to precipice when the campers at the coconut grove fleeing the rising ocean with cries of tsunami.
The first wave will be alarmed the campers was only 1.5 m. The second most wave, however was 7.9 m accepted campers into a trench near the base of cliff where they remained until the ordeal ended. The coconut grove that a few campers took shelter in received everlasting subsidence between 3.0 and 3.5 meters.
The largest record run-up was 14.3 m at Keauhou Landing, Hawaii Island. Also on the Island of Hawaii in the small cove of Punaluu the run-up reached 7.6 m. At Punaluu houses were swept off their basics and property were damaged. By the time local responsibilities should sound the coastal sirens the first wave had already arrived. As in the 1964 in Alaska the best caution to the possible danger of a local tsunami is the wavering from the earthquake that triggers it.
