  1. Great story by Rachel Levin about Whole Foods.

    The earthquake and Tsunami in Japan are awful and the photos capture the horror of it all.

    There is actually very little damage at the Santa Cruz Harbor, so the headline “Tsunami Wrecks Havoc in Santa Cruz and Crescent City” is somewhat misleading.

    Thanks for putting these all together today.

    • Yeah, “wreak havoc” might be a bit of an exaggeration, however from what I’ve read, it sounds like there were quite a few severely damaged boats down there. Of course, that’s rather insignificant compared to the devastation they’re experiencing in Japan.
