Dear  Friends;


Today again there was an earthquake in the Pacific. This one was in Vanuatu and was magnitude 8.0. First a tsunami watch then a warning were issed and the harbormaster here in Pago Pago released all vessels to go to sea and we fled to deep water. There was a tsunami but it was very small even close to the epicenter and the warning has now been canceled for American Samoa and we are heading back in.


Your friends of the yacht Carina,

Philip, Leslie and el jefe, Jake
