Yes. My thoughts and prayers to all those affected.

Here on Aust's east coast we're on alert and supposed to stay away from the water this whole beautiful sunny Sunday morning when many would normally be at the beach.

Prayers for all those affected, with much gratitude for the news about the family, Paco.

Friend checking in from Kailua, HI says it was kinda exciting for a bit but passed mostly without incident.
