Another Update: Galapagos Islands

The director of the Tropical Ecology Program, Dr. Kelly Swing, has advised by telephone that he and the students will remain on board the vessel on which they have been traveling and will put out to sea, where they will simply ride out the wave or waves, if they do come through this afternoon. The harmful effects of tsunamis are felt on seashores, but very mildly or not at all on surface vessels. We still anticipate that students will be able to depart the Galapagos tomorrow.
