The following was taken from Channel 2 news at about 8:00 am EST. 

A tsunami warning is in effect for the Hawaiian Islands.
This after an estimated 8.9 magnitude earthquake struck near east coast of Honshu, Japan.
Based on all available data a tsunami may have been generated by this earthquake that could be destructive on coastal areas even far from the epicenter.
If tsunami waves impact Hawaii the estimated earliest arrival of the first tsunami wave is after 3 a.m. Friday.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centers says a tsunami has been generated that could cause damage along coastlines of all islands in the state of Hawaii.
Urgent action should be taken to protect lives and property.
A 13-foot tsunami washed away cars and buildings following a massive, magnitude-8.9 earthquake off Japans northeastern coast, about six miles down.
Television footage showed severe flooding, with dozens of cars, boats and even buildings being carried along by waters. There are reports of death in Japan.
A large ship swept away by the tsunami rammed directly into a breakwater in Miyagi prefecture, according to footage on public broadcaster NHK.
The quake was followed by a series of aftershocks, including a 7.4-magnitude one about 30 minutes later. The U.S. Geological Survey upgraded the strength of the first quake to a magnitude 8.9.
Japan's prime minister says the 8.9-magnitude quake caused "major damage" in northeastern Japan.
The government's top spokesman, Yukio Edano, said that the country was sending troops to the quake-hit area to join relief efforts.
