This webcam is located on the territory of the Pacific Tsunami Museum. The museum is situated in the city of Hilo, on the island of Hawaii.
Hilo is a very beautiful and peaceful place, and people’s life here seems to be perfect. But just do not feel envy because in spite all that Hilo has been many times hit by terrible and destroying tsunami (last two times in 1946 and 1960). Later the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center was established in aim to track tsunami and warn people beforehand.
This museum is a very popular local attraction. It promotes public tsunami education and at the same time preserves the history and serves as a living memorial to those who lost their lives in past.
