Hawaii earthquake affects travel

Hawaii travelReports on the web about Sunday's earthquake in Hawaii state that life is difficult for travelers trying to get home.

Hawaii officials said airports were functioning on Monday morning but most flights are still being canceled.

There are few departures out of Honolulu International Airport, where passengers and bags are being screened manually due to the difficulties experienced.

Sunday night, flights from the Hawaii to Lindbergh Field were delayed, and those passengers that did get out were often re-routed to LAX.

Luckily, no one was killed in the quake, and only minor injuries were reported so this is not expected to have a negative impact on the renowned islands tourism.
