First tsunami wave hits Hawaii

Washington - The first tsunami wave hit Hawaii Sunday but the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center did not immediately say what the height was.

Earlier a spokesman for the centre told dpa there would be a first wave up to two metres, with further waves following.

"What we’re expecting, however is far from the disaster in Japan last year," Victor Sardina said.//DPA
