missing following a collision with an oil
"As time goes by, the hope grows less,"
said Coast Guard Capt. Marshal Gilbert.
Twenty-seven of the cutter's crewmen
were rescued and one was found dead

Some were found clinging to pilings of

over the Tampa Bay's entrance.

a slow search through flooded

Meanwhile, survivors told of hearing a

usually begin five days after exposure,
beginning with a sore throat, runny nose
and fever. Small red spots with white
centers appear in the throat and mouth,
often accompanied with loss of appetite.
Four days later, a red rash on the face and
body appears. Fever may be higher and
eyes may be sensitive to light. By the
eighth day the disease should have run its
course. Students should not return to
class until 24-48 hours after the fever and
rash disappear, officials advise.
