Hurricane Effects - El Faro

There is a container boat, the El Faro based here in Jacksonville that's gone missing on its route from Jax to Puerto Rico.
It was last heard from near Crooked Island in the Bahamas,  it's path taking it through the feeder bands of tropical storm (now hurricane) Joaquin...
33 crew are missing.

Just saw that the USCG found a life ring from the vessel 75 miles north of the last know position... not a good sign.

If you are on a first - name basis with a major deity,  please put in a good word for the captain & crew, would you?

They've apparently found a debris field late today. Thoughts and prayers for those onboard.
