Ursa Minor in Fiji - Tsunami report

We received an email from Judy & Bryan on Ursa Minor this morning letting us know all was well and that they were not affected by the tsunami that hit Samoa this week.

Plus, they have put up a blog post to reassure their friends. I think the date should say 1st October 2009...
No Surfin' for Ursa Minor
09/25/2009, Vuda Point
By now just about everyone has become aware of the tsunami that rocked the Samoas and parts of northern Tonga yesterday. and, although some areas of eastern Fiji saw small tsunami waves, none were seen on the western side of Viti Levu. We followed developments closely on the internet as we still have friends in American Samoa both on and off yachts. And, the harbor in Pago Pago where we anchored for a month two years ago was one of the most devastated locations. Tomorrow we head out for Vanua Levu and another chapter in our Fiji experience.
Have a great sail!
