the rogue wave accident became a local media sensation when it was first reported 40 years ago. several newspapers, including the everett Herald, followed the story from the day of the incident and throughout the women's monthslong recovery process.

because the nuns were working as teachers and principals at local catholic high schools in the pacific northwest, this tragic event, and their ensuing time in the hospital, grabbed the attention of their COMMUNITIES.
