Indications are that only one American (and that’s one too many) has died as a consequence of the massive tsunami that swept across the Pacific today and collided with the West Coast:
A 25-year-old man who was washed out to sea while trying to photograph the tsunami in northern California was confirmed dead Friday, according to Del Norte, California, authorities.
Stay away from the sea. It’s far too dangerous just now. And pray for the countless number of people in Japan affected far more profoundly.
