Glad to hear that you all are ok. A 6.5 earthquake is serious stuff.
Lets hope this is all for a long time. Yes, the aftershocks are scary.
As a former Californian I understand what you went through.

Glad to hear you're all right. My experience here in earthquake country
is that you sort of think you're OK after one of those, but finally
realize that with the aftershocks you haven't really slept for three
weeks or so. Treat each other extra nice for a while.

Best,
David

Thank you all so much for your good wishes. You are right, we are
still rattled. One cat is still missing:( but we will get back to
work today.

warmest aloha and a hug to each of you,

Happy News! All cats are back! Hiked to the top of our land and I
should have brought my camera because the coffee looks so beautiful! I
called for the cat and she responded back and now she is eating and
looks none the worse for her 24 hours away.

Sometimes it is the little things that make life so nice.

with aloha,

Cea,

It is good to hear that the important things are all well--you, your
family, and the animals. And glad to hear that your coffee
plantation, and your livelihood, are intact. Hope the structural
damage, like the water tank, is not too severe, and hope the recovery
proceeds smoothly.

All the best, Brad

Hey thanks for asking. We do have electricity but are kind of in
shock. It was a huge, to me, earthquake of 6.5. We lost many of
Bob's bottle collection, cats have disappeared, one water tank needs
big structural help, and the aftershocks are creepy. Not getting any
work done.

The most interesting thing to me was the huge dust cloud after some of
the cliffs at Kealakekua Bay must have crumbled. That cloud sailed
out to sea and I can still see the last traces and it is over 1.5
hours later.

But the coffee plants are fine:).

Again thanks for asking. that was scary.

Glad you're well. The aftershocks will continue for some time, but you
get used to them. You never quite think of "solid ground" the same way
after an earthquake.

Wow! glad you are all OK. That was a _very_ close earthquake:
http://eqinfo.ucsd.edu/dbrecenteqs/anza/quakes/2006288_evid140994/evid140994
.html

and only 3 miles down. That must have been so scary.

Holding good thoughts for the cats safe return.

Yeah, the aftershocks are unnerving. Sorry about the material losses.

Ah... good. I hope that the water tank's repair doesn't hinder you
guys too much. Kitties must've gotten spooked, but as soon as the ground
settles, they should come looking for food again :).

Glad to hear everyone's doing all right.
