We recently returned from a 10 day visit to the Big Island and, for?the first time, visited the Pacific Tsunami Museum (www.tsunami.org), which chronicles in pictures, videos and stories the tsunamis that hit Hilo in 1946 and 1960.? I’d heard about the tsunamis, but had never before sought to understand their impact -the tragedies and courage of the saviors and the saved.??
The video produced by the museum includes snippets of Martin Pence being interviewed since he lived there at the time.? Unfortunately, the snippets do not include his personal experiences of the tsunamis, but they do convey his wit and sense of humor.? I will try to find a transcript or video of the entire interview.
