[090929; 2203 UTC, Leaving Suwarrow atoll to Pago Pago, American Samoa 1313'S / 16306'W]



Dear Friends;

There was an 8.3 earthquake in Samoa today and a tsunami was generated. We were anchored in Suwarrow (Suvarov) in the Cook Islands when the tsunami came through here were not aware of it since its amplitude was likely very small. We are awaiting word from friends anchored in Apia and Pago Pago where there are rumors (just rumors right now) of damage.

Your friends of the yacht Carina,

Philip, Leslie and fat cat, Jake
