At 8:20 am this bright and beautiful morning of Tuesday 15th March 2011, I got a call. “Look outside! Do you see what I see? Did something explode? It’s white smoke and rising very fast.”
I rushed out to the balcony and took a short video (below).
After daily monitoring of the post-tsunami (now called “311”) news in Japan, I did not expect to see a replication on Maui which has no nuclear power plants. Are my eyes deceiving me or am I just too plugged into the Internet to know what else is going on around me?
It’s 8:50 am now. The smoke has dispersed. Does anyone know what caused it?
[Note @9:16 am – Don’t be alarmed. It’s sugar cane harvesting season.]
