JACKSONVILLE (CBSMiami/AP) — Federal investigators say they have identified the wreckage found as El Faro ship, reported lost at sea.
The National Transportation Safety Board said Monday on Twitter that the survey of the area will continue.
The ship sank in about 15,000 feet of water Oct. 1st during Hurricane Joaquin with 33 people aboard east of the Bahamas. No survivors were found.
The NTSB says sonar indicates the ship landed upright, which could help crews recover the ship's data record, or "black box."
The agency says the U.S. Navy is continuing to survey the area around the wreckage.
