 ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A 28-year-old British adventurer is making her second attempt at becoming the only woman to row solo across the North Pacific Ocean.
 
      The Anchorage Daily News reports (http://is.gd/M6OsAk) Sarah Outen was about to 250 miles southwest of Adak in Alaska's Aleutians on Wednesday. She is hoping to land there in no more than three weeks.
 
      Outen left Japan on April 27 and has been at sea for more than four months. It's part of her plan for a global trek by an ocean rowing shell, kayak and bike.
 
      Rick Thoman with the National Weather Service says storm intensity is increasing.
 
      Outen's first attempt ended in 2012 when she and another ocean rower had to be rescued near Japan after their boats were damaged in a tropical storm.
