Following the false missile alarm, it’s been absolute chaos in Hawaii.

Patrick Murphy, a Newport native, a contributor to What’s Up Newp, the founder of The Kings Lens And Friends and (at least for this winter) a winter resident of Hawaii, called in to What’s Up Newp Radio Edition on WADK 1540AM recently to take us through what life was like that day in Hawaii, what it’s been like during these days after, and what he and others learned and walked away from it all with.

Sam, a former resident of Newport, bartender at Fastnet Pub and pedicabber, also called into the program from Hawaii to share his thoughts and feeling about the entire scenario.
