Solo ocean rower pounded by tropical storm

A 27-year-old British adventurer who set out to row across the Pacific Ocean as part of her plan to circle the globe by land and sea was riding out a storm Wednesday night.

Rower Sarah Outen was caught by extreme weather 560 miles off the coast of Japan caused by Typhoon Mawar, which has already killed eight people in the Philippines with gusts of up to 130 mph.

Her rowing vessel, Gulliver, was rolled several times by the storm and the damage has yet to be assessed.
