those family members. pastor greene: hearing the recordings, the captain, shoreside, was difficult. just really recalling what could have been series of events at the time, and really having a feeling for what our loved ones could have been experiencing. chris: captain lawrence got a call from the coast guard response center in miami, to give up more information about what the response would be. the coast guard said they believed el faro could anchor 48 miles east of san salvador, since this was a disabled ship, not a distressed ship. even suggesting that tote get a tugboat to the ship, sooner or later. >> i'm not in the distress phase currently, because they are not at risk of sinking. chris: according to the coast guard, there was no need to try and evacuate crew from the ship. lawrence says he had received an e-mail the night before that

10:15 pm
has been a warm stretch for the ages. you see that light rain making its way in, trying out as it pupues eastward. not expect a lot, just a few sprinkles for the morning hours. do not be surprised if you see that either. this can front will continue to sack down, and that will keep the cloud cover out there. but we will continue to melt the snow pack that we have. you can see we have some sunshine, not a lot to the north to help melt that. but we do have light rain that at at least little bit of it. clouds continue throughout the day on sunday. by late afternoon and evening, we have a few more riblets of rain that could push through. just cloudy skies come on a relatively warm day, as we see our eyes in the mid 40's. not surprisingly, with the overnight low of 33. another night above freezing.
