Turtle Bay Resort employees worked through the night to ensure their guests were safe and protected as a tsunami warning indicated the possibility of a tsunami hitting the Island of O’ahu at approximately 3:25 am this morning.
The main building at Turtle Bay Resort is designed with potential tsunamis in mind. The safest place is in the corridors on the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th floors. Shortly after 2 am Turtle Bay Resort staff moved guests out of their rooms and into those corridors. People brought blankets, pillows, computers and games into the hallways and made an event out of it. Approximately 5 am the “all clear” word came and people moved back into their rooms. Turtle Bay Resort received no damages.
