On April 1st, 1946, a deadly zsunami hit this small fishing community called Laupahoehoe, off the Hana Highway in Maui. Some say the 3rd tidal wave was 50 feet high. No one seem to notice all the water being sucked out of the bay until it was too late. There were 24 students and 4 teachers. One teacher and two students is all that survived.
You can feel how vulnerable you are as you walk around this very low lying bay area to take photos. No where to run to seems to be the feeling you get.
