Yesterday (April 1st) we had enough rain in Hilo to trigger a flash-flood warning for much of the afternoon (I believe the airport got something like three inches in one hour). We also got a tsunami advisory from the magnitude-8.2 earthquake off of Chile. Thankfully, neither caused too much damage (that I've heard). Hilo drains pretty well (and my house is on a slight rise compared to the surroundings), and the tsunami caused only a few feet of sea level change in the harbor. It didn't trigger the sirens and full-scale evacuation we've had in past years. Of course, I also heard there was a powerful aftershock near Chile today, so it's still possible we could get a tsunami. Nothing to do but wait and see.
As I like to say, life's never dull when you live near sea level on an active volcano in the middle of the Ring of Fire!
