Another Houston family is on edge and waiting to hear from their loved ones who are on board the Carnival Triumph. News 92 FM’s Lanny Griffith has more:

Bill Yosts’ wife, her three sisters and their elderly parents set sail for the Caribbean, but then the fire broke out, the engines were silenced and  everything went south from there.

Yost says he had hoped they would have gone to Mexico instead of Mobile.

Bill Yost still doesn’t know if his family is going to take the all night eight-hour bus ride back to Galveston, or spend the night in New Orleans and fly home.  He won’t know that until  Triumph reaches Mobile.

Mr. Yost last spoke to his wife on Tuesday and conditions were already deteriorating.  Incidentally, this was their annual cruise with family. But he says this will be the last.
