Last time I checked, Pipeline was on the north side of the island, was
it not? Activity coming from Chile would be on the east and southern sides.
Nonetheless, based on television coverage it basically "sloshed" in and
out a lot without any real damage being done. Didn't even look like it
really got past the beaches from what I could see.
