Typhoon


One of two typhoons we were caught up in while I was aboard.
Picked up a "SOS" from a fishing boat off Okinawa, we seemed to be the only one to hear it.
Relayed their position to Okinawa and stayed in contact with them.
The last message I received from them was.....

" We are going down "


I was informed later that they were rescued.
