Updated information:

The USGS has upgraded the quake to a 6.6 on the Richter Scale. Governor Linda Lingle, has issued a disaster declaration for the entire state, as electricity is out all throughout the islands. Likewise, damage appears to be very intense in some areas of the Big Island.

Here is a list of Emergency frequencies that maybe used during the duration of this tragic event:
