Chrys Fey here, reporting for Disaster 5 News. I am in Hilo, where a tsunami hit yesterday morning. I have Tangelo T. Peel with me, a survivor of the tsunami. Can you tell our viewers what happened and how you survived?
“Certainly. I was sitting with old Whiskey down at the Grinning Dolphin – Whiskey enjoys a morning jump-start – paying half attention to the local news on the overhead TV, and wondering when Miss Claire might finish shopping for beads, up the hill. As chaperone on this exotic adventure, I need to know these things.
I was drawn to a reflection in the television screen, of the beach; glistening in the early morning sun as waves lapped gently at its edges. The news anchor was saying something about a pair of newlyweds when the ocean inhaled and I grabbed Whiskey’s arm. I had to find Miss Claire!
Whiskey ran out of his flip-flops as I raced up the hill toward the Bead Shop, calling for him to follow. Warning sirens blared in the distance even as the ocean exhaled a 30 ft. wave that chased us halfway up the steep incline. And the water kept coming, spreading darkly over the landscape with remnants of destroyed homes and businesses in tow.
The Bead Shop was spared only by virtue of location, and a handful of patrons – including Miss Claire – were visibly shaken. I approached her as she stared wide-eyed at a small television on the checkout counter and asked if she was all right.”
“Of course, but hush a minute. A couple of precious newlyweds have met with blighted fate, the story is up next!”

BLURB: Beth and Donovan have come a long way from Hurricane Sabrina and the San Francisco earthquake. Now they are approaching their wedding day and anxiously waiting to promise each other a lifetime of love. The journey down the aisle isn’t smooth, though, as they receive threats from the followers of the notorious criminal, Jackson Storm. They think they’ll be safe in Hawaii, but distance can’t stop these killers. Not even a tsunami can.
This monstrous wave is the most devastating disaster Beth has ever faced. It leaves her beaten, frightened. Is she a widow on her honeymoon? As she struggles to hold herself together and find Donovan, she’s kidnapped by Jackson's men.
Fearing her dead, Donovan searches the rubble and shelters with no luck. The thought of her being swept out to sea is almost too much for him to bear, but the reality is much worse. She’s being used as bait to get him to fall into a deadly trap.
If they live through this disaster, they may never be the same again.
