Oahu, HI (WBNG Binghamton) And that massive earthquake has triggered a Tsunami, which has hit Hawaii.
36-year-old Mary Deubler from Johnson City has lived in the island state for the past 6 months.
She's working in Oahu.
Deubler says she was awoken by blaring sirens early this morning.
Warning her of a potential Tsunami.
She quickly stocked up on supplies and gas, and then took her car to the top of a bridge, 800 feet above sea level.
"They evacuated the low-lying areas, they're telling everybody to move to higher ground, so it's kind of scary, being from New York, you know?" she says.
Deubler graduated from Johnson City High school in 1991.
Binghamton native, Mike Mastronardi is also with her in Hawaii.
We'll hear more from Deubler tonight, on Action News at 11.
