Run the Storm
A Savage Hurricane, A Brave Crew, and the Wreck of the SS El FaroLarge Print - 2018
"On October 1, 2015, the SS El Faro, a massive American cargo ship that made regular runs between Jacksonville, Florida and Puerto Rico, disappeared in Hurricane Joaquin, a category 4 storm. The ship, its hundreds of shipping containers, and its entire crew plummeted to the bottom of the ocean, three miles down. The sinking was the greatest seagoing US merchant marine shipping disaster since World War II. The ship had a seasoned crew, state-of-the-art navigation equipment, and advance warning of the storm. How, in this day and age, could something like this happen?" -- Page  of cover.
