I just saw on Fox News where the Empress of the North paddlewheel cruise ship is sinking 50 nautical miles southwest of Juneau after hitting rocks. This is the 3rd time this ship has hit ground in the last 5 years according to the news. They are in the process of evacuating 281 passengers and crew members and are calling for people to help with boats if possible. How scary is that! Im praying right now that everyone will stay safe.

Not the first time this ship has run aground and in March had an Norovirus outbreak.

Go to CNN.com or Foxnews.com and they have a picture. It is a gorgeous ship. You can also type in Empress of the North and pull up a website.
