Authorities Push Safety During Lobster Mini Season

With lobster mini season set to begin at midnight Tuesday, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is urging boaters to be safe. Officer Jorge Pino of the FWC said the season usually doesn't end without a deadly "trend." Members of the U.S. Coast Guard, who will be out and about to enforce laws, urged divers to swim with a buddy and use their dive flag.

U.S. Coast Guard crews are searching for a missing 21-year-old cruise ship passenger across some 320 square miles of the Atlantic Ocean Monday, authorities said.

The woman, from Bartlett, Tennessee, reportedly fell overboard off the Allure of the Seas 47 miles east of Fort Lauderdale Sunday night, the Coast Guard said.

Crew members searched the ship for the woman but did not find her.

Four aircrews and crew members from a Coast Guard cutter are contributing to the search. Authorities ask anyone with more information on the missing person to contact 7th Coast Guard District search and rescue coordinators at 305-415-6800.
