6.5 Earthquake

We're safe. At 7:08am there was a 6.5 Earthquake at 19.9 N, 155.0 W, 19 miles NNW of the Big Island. No Tsunami was generated. Power is out right now. Cellphones overloaded. Ham radio working great and puts me in touch directly with civil defense. Kona hospital may have sustained structural damage. Most people just reporting overturned shelves and TV. Linda Lingle was in Kona at the time of the quake. There have been 18 aftershocks since the quake ranging from 2.5 to 3.5. I'll send more info as I am able.
