November 21, 1999|From Times Wire Reports

Relief workers fanned out across the eastern Caribbean to assess damage from Lenny, a hurricane that killed at least 12 people. Lenny, downgraded to a tropical storm as it drifted east toward the open Atlantic, rampaged across a region encompassing at least 16 islands. Coast Guard crews recovered the body of Carl Wake, 43, of Bradenton, Fla., about four miles west of the island of Saba. The search for his companion, Steve Righby, 54, of New York City, was continuing.
