Another Tsunami update

Everything is OK here. We were at a low tide when the tsunami passed through, and they think that it helped to prevent a large surge. We only saw about a 4 foot depth swing (down 2’, then up 2’). This was not enough to cause any waves to come over the shore. It may have been different at high tide, but we don’t really know. The other fact in our favor is that we are on the east side of the atoll, with the west side between us and Japan which probably protected us some.  Apparently they did see a bigger depth change up at Roi, but I don’t have any numbers for up there.

Tsunami Update

Just a quick note to let our friends know that all is fine here on Kwajalein.
We heard about the warnings, but nothing of any interest was seen here. We are both fine and the boat appears to be good also. I will try and get out to the mooring later today to do a better check.

I will try and get a better blog update later...
