  • Lanakila Ihiihi O Iehova Ona Kaua

  • From the Album Hawaii

  • On April 1st, 1946 the area around the village of Ke’anae on Maui, Hawaii, was almost completely destroyed by a tsunami generated by an 8.6 magnitude earthquake off the coast of Alaska. Sadly this tiny low-lying village lost 20 children and four teachers to the massive 35 feet waves (10 m). The only building left standing was the Lanakila Ihiihi O Iehova O na Kaua Church built in 1856.
