Hawaii Tourism Authority Issues Statement on Tsunamis

The Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA) has issued a statement about the tsunamis in both Japan and Hawaii:
 
"Following the tragic events on Friday, a key priority for the HTA was to support Japan visitors' efforts to return home safely. Working together with Hawaii's airline industry partners, it is anticipated that all passengers displaced by cancelled flights due to the tsunami will be able to return to Japan by…Tuesday, March 15.
 
"Reports from across the state confirm that there was very little damage, particularly related to visitor industry infrastructure, on Hawaii's six major islands - Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Maui, and Hawaii island. Impact on visitors should be minimal and travelers planning to visit Hawaii should continue to do so with confidence."
