The U.S. Coast Guard has detected underwater noises where they are searching for a submersible that went missing while carrying five people to the Titanic wreck.
The Coast Guard announced on Wednesday that Canadian aircraft had detected underwater noises in the search area for the missing tourist submarine. As a result, underwater operations were relocated to investigate the source of the noises.
The Coast Guard said that the underwater operations have not yet found anything, but they are continuing. They also said that the data from the aircraft has been shared with Navy experts for further analysis, which will be considered in future search plans.
“The data from the P-3 aircraft has been shared with our U.S. Navy experts for further analysis which will be considered in future search plans.”
The news that a submersible exploring the Titanic has gone missing has left many people on the internet terrified.
“Just like all the wealthy people onboard Titanic. Your money means nothing when it comes down to it. Hope they’re found safe,” wrote one commenter.
“I think the Titanic has claimed enough lives…..let her rest in peace…” added another.
“This has given me the most claustrophobia ever,” another confirmed.
The search is concentrated in a remote area of the Atlantic Ocean, approximately 900 miles east of Cape Cod. The water in this area is very deep, reaching depths of up to 13,000 feet. This makes the search difficult and dangerous, as the submersible could be anywhere in this vast area.
