That's right, what you are hearing at the moment is the tsunami warning. It's the second time that it sounded tonight. People across the islands in Hawaii have been told that the wave could hit in about 4 hours, just under 4 hours at 7 minutes past 3 in the morning. It is now 11:15. I'm just gonna be quiet, there is police car with a loud hailer.

The police are saying all visitors of the Waikiki area return to your hotels. Return immediately to your hotel for instructions. This is not a drill listen to your radio and TV for instructions. So that's what the police are telling people on loud hailers on the streets, and you are looking at the picture of the road, outside my hotel, normally a quiet road that runs along a quiet canal in the back of Waikiki. But at 11:20, here at night, this is now turning into obviously an evacuation route for many people who are concerned.

We understand that on Oahu, which is the island that Honolulu sits, there are 30,000 people in unsafe areas, who have been told to move half a mile inland. That leaves most of the million or so residents here in safe areas. Do what they are talking about here in Waikiki, calling this a vertical evacuation. There are a lot of skyscrapers here, a lot of hotels that sit along the Pacific coast, a very beautiful part of the world. They are asking people who are below the third floor to move above the third floor and to listen to their radio and TV for instructions.

We've just been down to shops ourselves to get some water and some supplies and come back into the hotel. There are a lot of people out there, a lot of people talking about it., but also a lot of realism here. People in Hawaii are used to events like this. They are taught from an early age on(去掉on) how to cope with them, there are instructions in the front of the telephone directories here is to what to do when the tsunami siren sounds. I think really most people who are feeling a little jittery at the moment are probably tourists, and there are many hundreds of thousands of tourists who visit this part of the world every year. A lot of them of course are from Japan. There are a lot of Japanese people here, a very strong Japanese influence in the cuisine as well. Many of those are of course jamming phone lines trying to find out news from home.
