The tsunami was 1/2 meter in Kauai 

The road to the west side is still closed at Hanapepe.  No work today.  Yipeee! :-)

Also, no real damage:

"Doug Sears of the Grand Hyatt Kauai in Poipu told KHON around 3:30 a.m. that there was "nothing exciting yet." He reported a "non-event" and said a minor surge in the surf was observed.

Reports around the island indicated only slight rises in water levels at coastal areas.

A 2.1-foot rise was recorded at Nawiliwli Harbor; 2.8 feet in Hanalei, according to the National Weather Service. No damage was reported."
