Cargo Ship Missing After Joaquin

ELEUTHERA, Bahamas (AP) – The U.S. Coast Guard says an aerial search will resume at daylight in Bahamian waters for a disabled cargo ship with 33 crewmembers, including 28 Americans.

The ship lost contact after running into Hurricane Joaquin and taking on water. Joaquin is moving away from the Bahamas after inundated the archipelago and the threat to the U.S. East Coast is fading.

Damage assessments in the Bahamas are expected to take some time.
