Wednesday, April 29, 2015

 

The Coast Guard says it has recovered a third body from Mobile Bay after a severe storm capsized sailboats in a Regatta on Saturday. Authorities are still looking for one missing person.  A Coast Guard spokesman said two aircraft and numerous boats searched on Sunday.  Strong wind and waves suspended the search Monday for a few hours.  Searches covered a huge area so far, but target areas still remain. More than 100 Sailboats took part in the Dauphin Island race on Saturday afternoon and 40 people were rescued from the water.
