Hawaii people have no concept of the spontaneous threat should part of the Big Island just drop off and fall into the ocean. There are many parts of our islands that have simply fractured and fallen into the ocean, It will come. Kakaako and Waikiki may just disappear. Rail will still be standing but nowhere and nothing to go to.
