Newly-launched Orion II caught just few miles from a 7.3 magnitude earthquake.
Currently sailing on her inaugural voyage, Orion II was sailing only miles from where an earthquake struck in the Aleutian Islands. The ship is currently on tsunami alert. Luckily, no injuries have been reported and Orion II is undamaged.
Captain Mike Taylor reported:
“Orion II sailed from Chagulak at 1730, bound for Adak. At 1910 we were notified that an earthquake with a nominal strength of 7.3 had happened. Checks of tanks and voids showed no signs of leakage and all systems are working normally. Orion II is continuing the voyage to Adak and all passengers have been advised of the earthquake that occurred.”
