- While this particular virus isn’t doing widespread damage, its emergence opens the door for other viruses to pop up between oceans.
- The Alaska Marine Highway System recently deployed the Tazlina to restore winter service to some Southeast communities. But the ferry can’t serve Angoon right now — its ramp is broken.
