By Barbara Liston JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Reuters) - Deep seas will likely hamper efforts to find the sunken U.S. cargo ship lost off the Bahamas during Hurricane Joaquin, a federal safety investigator said on Tuesday, as a search for 32 missing crew ran into a sixth fruitless day. National Transportation Safety Board member Bella Dinh-Zarr spoke before her arrival in Jacksonville, Florida, to help spearhead an NTSB investigation into what maritime experts have called the worst cargo shipping disaster involving a U.S.-flagged vessel in more than 30 years. Its last known location, after departing Jacksonville last week en route to San Juan, Puerto Rico, was off Crooked Island in the Bahamas.
Health officials in Brazil said a record 693 people have died so far this year after contracting dengue fever, the deadly mosquito-borne disease running rampant across Central and South America. Most of the deaths occurred in Sao Paulo state, according to a statement from the federal health ministry, which said the deaths were the highest since 1990, when officials began compiling records tracking the number of people infected with the ailment. The actual number of fatalities is presumably higher, since the official figure reflects deaths in Brazil from dengue from the beginning of the year just through the end of August.
Oregon's top law enforcement officer paid a visit to the grief-stricken town of Roseburg on Tuesday to meet with authorities investigating last week's massacre on a community college campus where a gunman killed his professor and eight classmates. The trip by state Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum comes a day before Oregon state police planned to hold a news conference to give an update on the role played by officers who exchanged gunfire with the suspect before he committed suicide. Authorities initially suggested the gunman had been killed in a shootout with two Roseburg police officers arriving on the scene of Thursday's attack in a classroom building at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg.
