$1.4M federal grant to repair Oahu boat harbor

HONOLULU (AP) - An Oahu boat harbor damaged by the tsunami spawned by the March 11 earthquake in Japan will be getting more than $1.4 million in repairs.

Hawaii's congressional delegation in Washington said Tuesday the money for Keehi Small Boat Harbor comes from a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

About 200 boats were damaged at the harbor after waves shook loose docks with the vessels attached.

The harbor is home to about 400 berths and is located about five miles from Waikiki on Oahu's south shore.
