As you all know today Japan has suffered from a terrible earthquake and subsequent tsunami.
It appears that our region has escaped injury from the earthquake generated tsunami. According to NOAA’s Pacific Tsunami Warning Center the tsunami measured 2.1 ft when it passed Saipan in the Northern Marianas and .5 foot when it passed Yap, one of the Micronesian islands.
I don’t have the height of the wave when it passed Kosrae, but it doesn’t appear to have had any impact here on Kosrae Island.
All guests and staff at Kosrae Village are safe and well.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Japanese people,
