Breaking News: Japanese Fishing Vessel Loses Signal, Goes Missing
After receiving a scrambled distress call, the Coastal Safety Watch launches a full investigation into the crew of the Sun Five. The San Diego-bound ship reported a near collision with a massive "black iceberg," but the claim did not correspond initial SAR readings and would be unusual for these waters. Officers are still trying to interpret Captain Okumura's final message: "The iceberg... it saw us."
A Special Report has just surfaced: Could this be the beginning of something big?

There's Something Out There...
Hey Islanders - brace yourselves, Mother Earth's getting all shook up by something BIG. After I went surfing this morning, my seismograph was picking up deep sea tectonic activity, which will mean huge waves from Tsujido Beach clear over to PB in San Diego in the next few days. A high surf advisory has been put into effect in many coastal cities (check local weather services for details). I'm not an "expert" stormwatcher, but if my readings are correct, the epicenter of this seismic activity is actually moving.
Looks like a force of nature is headed our way. Stay tuned as we track this story.

A group of cetologists conducting humpback whale bioacoustics research have found more than they bargained for.

Oceanographers have been tracking the echolocation trajectory, and predict the source will reach the San Diego coastline some time this week.
Did you see this story today? What on Earth could make this sound, and where’s it headed now?
