Alabama Sailing Competition Boats Capsize, 5 Missing, 2 Dead

A number of sailboats capsized when a sudden storm hit during a regatta near Mobile Bay, Alabama, that left two people dead and five sailors still missing, officials said. Coast Guard crews scouring the waters found one body Saturday night and another Sunday morning after the thunderstorm threw several mariners overboard, Coast Guard Capt. Duke Walker said. Of the 10 boats that capsized or suffered damage, three were participating in one of the races of the Dauphin Island Sailing Regatta at the Fairhope Yacht Club, Walker said.

Anonymous Donor Paying Off Oso Mudslide Victim's $360,000 Mortgage

An anonymous donor is paying off the $360,000 mortgage for a man who lost his wife and house in a deadly mudslide. The massive mudslide destroyed Tim Ward's farmhouse near Oso, Washington, where he and his wife, Brandy, raised turkeys and chickens. They were both home on March 22, 2014, when the wall of earth and debris came cascading down the hill where Brandy was killed instantly by the impact. The anonymous donor read about the story in the newspaper and reached out to Ward's bank offering to pay off the loan. Ward fully understands that the good Samaritan wants to remain anonymous. His message to that person: "Thank you. Totally, thank you." Read »

2 Dead, 5 Missing After Storm Hits Alabama Regatta

Five sailors are still missing after a number of sailboats capsized when a sudden storm hit during a regatta near Mobile Bay, Alabama, Saturday afternoon, leaving at least two people dead, officials said Sunday. Coast Guard crews scouring the waters found one body on Saturday night and another on Sunday morning after the thunderstorm threw several mariners overboard, said U.S. Coast Guard Capt. Duke Walker. Of the ten boats that capsized or suffered damage, three were participating in one of the races that was part of the Dauphin Island Sailing Regatta, Walker said. Walker said that 40 people had been rescued from the water after the 4:30 p.m. storm, and the Coast Guard believes five people remained missing Sunday. Dauphin Island Mayor Jeff Collier said he didn't know how many boats were in the water when winds of up to 80 mph rolled in, but he said usually 150 boats compete in the event. Read »

Death Toll in Nepal Soars as Rescuers Struggle to Reach Many

The death toll from Saturday's magnitude-7.8 earthquake in Nepal soared past 4,000, the Associated Press reported Monday, and aid agencies warned that it could skyrocket higher once rescuers make it to rural communities that thus far have been inaccessible. Vast tent cities have sprung up in Nepal's capital, Kathmandu, for those displaced or afraid to return to their homes as strong aftershocks continued through Sunday. On Mount Everest — where an avalanche triggered by the quake killed at least 18 — climbers reported more avalanches. Officials said most hospitals were overflowing and short on supplies, but little sign of organized relief efforts was visible as aid agencies struggled to fly helicopters in cloudy weather, aftershocks forced airport closures and landslides blocked roads. "Our people on the ground have found the overall situation to have been worse than their worst fears," said Save the Children, one of the many aid groups sending emergency teams to Nepal. Read »
