Tsunami Galapagos update
Reports from the Galapagos Islands have just arrived with the following update on the passing of the waves that resulted from Japan’s earthquake earlier today: The waves arrived to the Islands about an hour later than originally expected. Seas are choppier than normal around the entire archipelago (according to our captains aboard M/V Evolution and M/Y Grace), but nothing out of the ordinary. Waves at Academy Bay, in Puerto Ayora (Santa Cruz Island), were taller than normal as well, but there are no records of any damages caused to boats, coasts or ports in the Galapagos. The animals from the Charles Darwin Research Station that had been transported to the highlands as a precaution will be transported back down during the course of the day tomorrow. All appears to be back to normal in the Islands.
Local airlines have confirmed as well that all flights will operate normally tomorrow at their regular scheduled times. No delays are expected with our flight operations for tomorrow.
The Tsunami Warning in Ecuador is expected to be lifted in the next couple of hours.
I wonder if Curious George was up lifted to higher ground?
