The British-owned oil tanker Odyssey, lashed by 25-foot waves and heavy winds, split apart in the Atlantic and caught fire Thursday. Rescuers found two scorched lifeboats but no signs of the 27 crew members, authorities said. John Hughes, marine controller at the Halifax Rescue Coordination Center, was not optimistic about the chances for survival in the frigid water. Two Canadian air force planes from Nova Scotia called off a search after sunset.

A 250-foot cargo ship en route from Bermuda to New York with 11 crewmen aboard capsized and sank in stormy seas off the Atlantic coast Wednesday night, the Coast Guard said. After searching for several hours, a Coast Guard C-130 plane spotted a life raft with an unknown number of survivors and a helicopter was dispatched to try to pick them up, said Coast Guard Petty Officer Kenneth Arbogast. "There were people on the raft waving flashlights, but we don't know how many," he said.

The Coast Guard on Friday called off its air-sea search for six crewmen lost and presumed dead in the sinking of a Bermuda-bound cargo ship in an Atlantic gale. Rescue planes Friday searched 9,300 square miles of ocean off New Jersey before the search was suspended at 8:25 p.m. The presumed deaths raise the death toll to eight in the sinking of the 254-foot container ship Lloyd Bermuda. The vessel went down Wednesday night after its cargo shifted in the storm.
