As a regular visitor, I would like to commend Dailin Wang, an oceanographer with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, for implementing the tsunami warning system on Oct. 27.
I have been on Maui through previous events and it is always better to be safe than sorry. I happened to be staying in Lahaina but was visiting friends in Wailuku and, from my perspective, everything went smoothly with all emergency services, radio and notifications calmly providing the public with information and updates.
All of us woke up the next morning very thankful that Hawaii had been spared and because of actions putting into practice policies to handle tsunami warnings.
To all the various state and local government entities, along with Dailin Wang, thank you for a job well done.
