On Truk Atoll, now known as Chuuk Atoll, one person was killed after a coconut tree fell on him. On May 18, the Federated States of Micronesia was declared a disaster area by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The weather station and over 2,250 homes were destroyed on
was first visited by Spanish explores on the galleon "San Jerónimo" on 5 July 1566. At Pisaras Island, the rebel pilot Lope Martín and his gang of mutineers (thirteen soldiers and thirteen sailors) murdered Captain Pero Sánchez Pericón and other expedition members, and were subsequently marooned.
Atoll, also called Namonweito, Weito, or Magur Islands, is the largest atoll of the Federated States of Micronesia and of the Caroline Islands with a total area of , unless one considers the still larger Chuuk (Truk) Lagoon as a type of atoll in an early stage of development. In Micronesia, only Kwajalein Atoll of the Marshall Islands is still larger.
On 23 August 1942 "Wahoo" got underway for her first war patrol, seeking Japanese shipping in waters west of Truk, particularly in the area between the Hall Islands and the
Atoll. On 6 September, her third day in the area, "Wahoo" fired three torpedoes at her first target, a lone freighter; all torpedoes missed because the ship turned toward "Wahoo", apparently with the intent to ram. The submarine dodged, fearful of counterattack from the air.
The Chuuk flying fox or Ruck flying fox ("Pteropus insularis") is a species of flying fox in the family Pteropodidae. It is endemic to Micronesia. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical dry forests. The threats to the species are not well known, however since the species is found on a small area (the two islands of Chuuk Lagoon and
Atoll), the species was classified as "Critically Endangered" by the IUCN in 2009.
As a reminder of Morrell's brief Antarctic exploits, Morrell Island, at 59°27'S, 27°19'W, is an alternative name for Thule Island in the Southern Thule sub-group of the South Sandwich Islands. During his Pacific travels Morrell encountered groups of islands that were not on his charts, treated them as new discoveries and named them after various New York acquaintances – Westervelt, Bergh, Livingstone, Skiddy. One was named "Young William Group" after Morrell's infant son. None of these names appear in modern maps, although the "Livingstone Group" has been identified with
Atoll, and "Bergh's Group" with the Chuuk Islands.
First recorded sighting by Europeans of Erikub Atoll was on 29 June 1566 by the Spanish galleon "San Jerónimo" then commanded by pilot Lope Martín. It is however likely that it had already been sighted previously by the Spanish expedition of Ruy López de Villalobos in between December 1542 and January 1543. Pilot Lope Martín who had been pilot of the patache "San Lucas" on its voyage from New Spain to the Philippines the previous year, had in this occasion mutineed with a gang of twenty six sailors and soldiers and murdered the "San Jerónimo's" captain, Pero Sánchez Pericón. The conspirators, including Martín would be later marooned in the
Atoll lies in the northwestern region ("Oksoritod") of Chuuk State, the largest federal state of the Federated States of Micronesia, about northwest of Chuuk Lagoon (measured from Pisaras Islet to the northern and western parts of the fringing reef of Chuuk Lagoon. It is roughly triangular in shape, with the base running along its southern side. The southwest corner of the triangle is marked by Ulul islet, the main island (largest and most populated), also called Onoun. The other islets lie mostly on the northeast side, from Pisaras islet in the southeast corner to Magur (Makur) islet in the north corner. The 12 islets have an aggregate land area of only . The total population is 1.341 (census of 2000).
She continued to patrol the Truk area until 20 September, when she decided to leave the southwest part of the patrol area and explore south of the
Atoll. Under a bright moon and clear sky, the submarine sighted a freighter and her escort. "Wahoo" launched three torpedoes; all missed. A fourth hit the target, which was thought to take a port list and settled by the stern. Four minutes later, a series of three underwater explosions wracked the freighter. "Wahoo" was chased by the escort but escaped by radically changing course in a rain squall. Though credited at the time with a freighter of , postwar analysis of Japanese shipping records by JANAC showed no sinking at this time or place.
War came to "Cachalot" as she lay in Pearl Harbor Navy Yard in overhaul. In the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor of 7 December 1941, one of her men was wounded, but the submarine suffered no damage. Yard work on her was completed at a furious pace, and on 12 January 1942 she sailed on her first war patrol. After fueling at Midway Island, she conducted a reconnaissance of Wake Island, Eniwetok, Ponape, Truk,
, and the Hall Islands, returning to Pearl Harbor on 18 March with vitally needed intelligence of Japanese bases. Her second war patrol, for which she cleared from Midway on 9 June, was conducted off the Japanese home islands, where she damaged an enemy tanker. Returning to Pearl Harbor on 26 July, she cleared on her final war patrol on 23 September, penetrating the frigid waters of the Bering Sea in support of the Aleutian Islands operations.
Satawalese is identified as an Austronesian language and is a member of the Truukic language subgroup. Discovered by scholar Edward Quackenbush, the Truukic subgroup is a dialect chain composed of a variety of about 17 different languages and dialects extending 2,100 kilometers across the western Pacific (Roddy, 2007). This chain begins at Chuuk in the east and stretches towards Sonsorol in the west. In the center of this dialect continuum lays Satawalese. Using the comparative method, which involves the observation of vocabulary and sound correspondence similarities, linguists were able to link Satawalese as well as its sister languages to the Trukic language family. Sister languages of Satawalese include Carolinian, Chuukese, Mapia, Mortlockese,
, Paafang, Puluwatese, Sonsorol, Tanapag, Tobian, Ulithian, and Woleaian.
Chuuk State also includes several more sparsely populated "outer island" groups, including the Mortlock Islands to the southeast, the Hall Islands (Pafeng) to the north,
Atoll to the northwest, and the Pattiw Region to west. The Pattiw Region is of particular interest in that it has some of the most traditional islands in the Pacific and is culturally related to outer islands of Yap. This group includes the islands of Pollap, Tamatam, Poluwat, and Houk. Today you can still find traditional master navigators—Poluwat and Pollap are considered to have some of the best navigators and ocean-going outrigger canoes in the Pacific. In the islands of the Pattiw Region, and some of the Islands of Yap, you will still find today the last two remaining schools of navigation, Weriyeng and Faaluush. Visiting the Pattiw Region in the west, however, is difficult due to the lack of reliable transportation. Houk probably has the most accessible airstrip in the Pattiw Region, with planes landing every one or two weeks.
On 31 March, she entered the patrol area in the Caroline Islands, and, on 1 April 1943, she conducted submerged patrols off North Pass Island, Truk, and later in the day on the Japanese naval base's western approaches. Failing to find any action in these areas, she surfaced late in the afternoon on 2 April and set her course for the channel between Puluwat Island and Pulap Island. Later that day, as she patrolled off Alet Island, "Tunny" made radar contact with a ship dead ahead. Heading in for a flank attack, she sighted a astern of her chosen target. "Tunny" launched three torpedoes from and noted a hit in the forward hold of the Japanese cargo ship before diving to to avoid the attention of the destroyer. Minutes later, a series of nine depth charges tumbled down in search of the submarine, but exploded at too shallow a depth to achieve their purpose. Some 15 minutes later, as "Tunny" started up to take a look, she was jolted by a deep-set depth charge which caught her at , but caused only minor damage—a small price to pay for the sinking of "Toyo Maru Number 2". Before midnight, the destroyer gave up the search, and the submarine surfaced and set her course for the
group to the north.
