Four missing, one dead

Transportation Disaster

At least four are missing and one is dead in Alabama after several boats capsize in a storm during the Dauphin Island Regatta. The search for survivors continues. Officials:

It’s been a very tragic day. We’ve had a lot of breakage, missing people, fatalities. Apparently there were a number of vessels that became distressed, either capsized or what have you. They were scattered anywhere from Dauphin Island Bridge all the way out into Mobile Bay and across to Fort Morgan. It was a wide area.

Two dead, five missing
