Sunbathers sit poolside in Waikiki in Honolulu.  A tsunami spawned by the deadly earthquake in Japan caused tens of millions of dollars in damage to homes, businesses and boats in Hawaii after the waves crashed ashore on the state’s pristine beaches last week. Now the islands are bracing for another hit — a loss in travelers from Japan.  Gov. Neil Abercrombie predicted the economic consequences will be severe for this tourism-dependent state that is already dealing with a projected shortfall of nearly $1 billion over the next two years.
