Today's weather trivia: 8 November

2004: A tug towing two barges northwest of Vancouver, BC, vanished. Search
vessels battled gale-strength winds, poor visibility, rain, and choppy seas.
Rescuers located a debris field and an empty life raft but no other signs of
life. The tug likely sank in 250 m of water to the bottom of the Strait of
Georgia. The strong current may have moved the barge and the bodies a fair
distance from the sinking.
