CREW OF TALL SHIP OFF NC ABANDONS PORTSMOUTH, Va. (AP) — Donning survival suits and boarding life boats, the crew of a tall ship in distress off North Carolina’s Outer Banks abandoned the vessel as Hurricane Sandy swirled toward the East Coast, the Coast Guard said early Monday. The 17 people aboard the HMS Bounty got into two 25-foot lifeboats with canopies, wearing survival suits and life jackets, Coast Guard Petty Officer 3rd Class David Weydert in Portsmouth, Va., said. http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_SUPERSTORM_SHIP?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2012-10-29-06-52-00
