‘Into the Storm’
Author Tristram Korten discusses the book “Into the Storm” the true story of two doomed ships swept up into Hurricane Joaquin in September 2015 and a daring search-and rescue operation that shines a light on the elite Coast Guard swimmers trained for the most dangerous ocean missions.
Late September 2015, Hurricane Joaquin swept past the Bahamas and swallowed a pair of cargo vessels in its destructive path: El Faro, a 790-foot American behemoth with a crew of thirty-three, and the Minouche, a 230-foot freighter with a dozen sailors aboard. From the parallel stories of these ships and their final journeys, Tristram Korten weaves a remarkable tale of two veteran sea captains from very different worlds, the harrowing ordeals of their desperate crews, and the Coast Guard’s extraordinary battle against a storm that defied prediction.
