I was at my boat today and when the cold front came through the winds were intense. I suspect the water by the Fort was pretty rough for one of those pontoon type taxis. I hope they are all found, the water there is nasty and deep.

They have life jackets on board but you are not required to wear one. Hopefully all got to shore safely.

Happened close to Ft. McHenry. The squall was pretty intense, high winds and rain, storm itself was moving at 60mph. According to news this evening, 25 people total were on board when it went over. 1 fatality and 3 missing as of edit.

Quote:
"It was like the twilight zone. It was eerie how the weather just overtook the vessel," said Command Master Chief Melvin Johnson, who was among a group of Naval reservists training nearby when the boat overturned.

Petty Officer Edward Mendez said he watched the gusts toss the vessel "like a little toy boat getting blown out of control."

Heartfelt sympathy to the families.
