In the conditions they were in, it would have been likely difficult to even walk around. From what I have gathered, they were in the eye wall of
the storm when contact was loss.
Hurricane conditions at sea are a nightmare. With the spray from the wind and waves, they probably had close to zero visibility on deck. Just
trying to find a lifeboat would have been difficult for the crew.
This is tragic.
While this storm developed quickly, I can't help but wonder if the captain was a bit negligent for not changing their course before the
conditions got out of control. My understanding is that did not loose power until after they were in the storm.
