ABSTRACT
The article talks about the tsunami that happened in Hilo, Hawaii on April 1, 1946. The first people who were killed by the tsunami were the people living in Alaska including the five workers at the Scotch Cap lighthouse. The lighthouse which was 40 feet above the water and stood five stories high was hit by the tsunami. Nobody was left to warn the people of Hilo in Hawaii about the waves travelling across the ocean.
