Hurricane Joaquin lashes the Bahamas, veers away from the US 3:17
Searchers were looking Friday for a cargo ship with 33 people on board that went missing during Hurricane Joaquin, as the category 4 storm continued to deliver fierce winds, flooding and torrential rain to the Bahamas, officials said.
The El Faro, a 735-foot cargo ship bound for San Juan in Puerto Rico from Jacksonville, Florida, lost communication at around 7:20 a.m. Thursday when a distress call from the ship indicated it was taking on water, the U.S. Coast Guard and the maritime company that owns the ship, TOTE Maritime Puerto Rico, said.
