Hawaii remains on alert for destructive tsunami waves triggered by Chile's early morning 8.8-magnitude earthquake.
The first wave was expected to hit the Big Island by 11:19 a.m. local time, 4:19 p.m. ET, but that time has passed without unusually large wave activity measured along Hawaii's shores.
Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle had said waves as high as 7½ feet could strike the Hilo area on the Big Island but much smaller 1½-foot waves are expected in Honolulu Harbor on Oahu.
