    Talking about Wednesday is little confusing, though. It’s true that the earthquake happened on the 22nd, but the tsunami hit Hilo just after 1 AM on the 23rd. This year, that’s going to be Thursday.

    Thanks, “you were there,” for catching that. The article has been corrected to show that by the time the waves arrived in Hilo it was May 23.
