10 May, 2014

Strong winds and rough seas force rescuers to temporarily call off the search. Weather warnings are up for the area until Monday, 12 May. With the recovery of two more bodies yesterday, the toll now stands at 275, with 29 missing.  An official at Jindo tells reporters:

Waves are rising to the point that they are wetting the deck of the barge that is being used as the staging area for divers.
