8.9

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Japan, particularly those of Sendai. An 8.9 earthquake struck the coast, prompting officials to issue tsunami alerts throughout the Pacific Rim. BBC has unbelievable footage of a vortex swallowing fishing boats. Shots of brave crews aboard fishing boats on Earthquake Video Headquarters are heart-wrenching. The fantastic journalists of the Guardian in the UK are posting up-to-the-minute reports.

The St Jude is docked in Westport, Washington, and we’re holding our breath.
