At least three hotels were damaged by this morning’s tsunami with more reports expected, said Mufi Hannemann, president of the Hawaii Hotel & Lodging Association.

The King Kamehameha’s Kona Coast Resort will relocate guests for three days after about a foot of water damaged its restaurant and lobby. A wave also came through the poolside of the Mauna Lani Resort on the Big Island’s Kohala Coast, Hannemann said.  As much as three or four football fields of water passed through the Maui Beach in Wailuku, Hannemann said.

“Water damage was only evident on the Big Island’s Kona Coast and the Kohala Coast and in Wailuku Maui,” he said. “No one is reporting structural damages or loss of life. As far as we can tell, the damage was minor.”

There was no property damage on Kaui or Oahu, Hannemann said.
