5:08 AM · Feb 4, 2020

This video we visit a few sites from Hilo to Laupahoehoe that were impacted in the 1946 and 1960 Tsunamis. These two deadly events forever altered life on the Big Island of Hawaii, ending some industries while allowing room for others to begin. The traumatic loss of life encountered in Shinmachi and Laupahoehoe, Hawaii defined how future generations would utilize coastal lands. This video recaps Dane's recent visit to the Pacific Tsunami Museum in Hilo, the Shinmachi Memorial, the Singing Bridge in Hilo, and Laupahoehoe.
