Japan is indeed quite a mess, and I feel for the people affected. But the "tsunami" that hit hawaii was way over hyped. CNN is reporting (with video) 7' waves. I believe that place is known for surfing, which generally has larger waves than that. But according to the media reports, 7' waves are HUGE!
Tsunamis are not like regular (wind) waves. A 7 ft tsunami, particularly one hitting at high tide, could cause quite a mess in low-lying coastal areas.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
