The view from Guam

My Aunt Nancy Weare checked in from Guam, 1,600 miles south of Japan:
We're fine. Two Navy subs broke loose and had to be tied up again so we had increased wave action but nothing serious. 2,000 Japanese tourists that were supposed to leave, couldn't, so the hotels had people sleeping on cots.

Thanks for the thoughts. Aunt Nancy
