WUHAN Allen Robinson II Jersey , June 2 (Xinhua) -- Fourteen people have been rescued and seven are confirmed dead more than 24 hours after a passenger ship carrying 456 people capsized in China's Yangtze River, navigation authorities said Tuesday.


Rescuers said there could be more survivors in the upturned wreckage, but strong winds and heavy rain are hampering rescue efforts. More than 430 people are still missing.


The Eastern Star sank "within one or two minutes" of being caught in a tornado in Jianli, central Hubei Province, on Monday night, according to the ship's captain and chief engineer, who both survived the incident.


The Changjiang (Yangtze) River Administration of Navigational Affairs, under the Ministry of Transport, said that as of 9 p.m., 12 people had been rescued from the water, and another two were rescued from the wreckage.


Divers are combing the compartments for survivors, while the search on the river has expanded to 150 km downstream of the site and will continue to 220 km, said Li Jiang, vice head of the administration.


A team of 4,000, including police, fire fighters and soldiers from the Chinese Navy, are involved in the rescue mission.


Carrying mostly elderly tourists, the ship left the eastern Chinese city of Nanjing on May 28 for Chongqing Municipality on the upper reaches of China's longest river.


The Ministry of Transport said there were 456 people onboard, including 405 passengers, 46 crew and five tour guides.


Most of the passengers were from Shanghai and its neighboring province Jiangsu, aged between 3 and 83. The majority were in their 60s and 70s.


The ship's captain and chief engineer are in police custody.


RESCUE


Chinese President Xi Jinping has despatched a State Council work team to the site to guide the search and rescue work, and ordered all-out efforts.


Premier Li Keqiang, who is at the scene, has asked rescuers to seize every second, battle fatigue and challenge the extremes.


At about noon, A 65-year-old woman was able to swim out of the wreckage after divers gave her breathing apparatus.


A 21-year-old man was found trapped in a small compartment. He was also given diving apparatus and swam out by himself at about 3 p.m.


The Three Gorges Dam, located up-stream from the site of the accident, has limited water flow to counteract the rising water level caused by the persistent rain.


The divers said ongoing rescue efforts had been complicated by the intricate layout of the vessel, as well as adverse weather condition.


A 500-ton salvage vessel has arrived at the site, and another one of same size is scheduled to arrive Wednesday morning.


The 76.5-meter ship can carry up to 534 people. Tickets for the cruise cost from 1,098 yuan (177 U.S. dollars) to 2,298 yuan.


Passengers visit attractions during the daytime and return in the evening as the ship travels to the next port overnight. The agency arranging the tour marketed it toward senior citizens.


On Monday, the passengers visited Chibi (the Red Cliffs), a famous ancient battlefield. On Tuesday, the tourists were scheduled to visit Jingzhou City.

Route 66 er en verdenskjent vei tvers over det nordamerikanske kontinent. Skal du se USA er det en glimrende strekning med mye flott natur og mange severdigheter, også mange fine amerikanske byer. Veien ble påbegynt allerede i 1923, og går fra Chicago til Los Angeles. Første billøpet på veien var allerede i 1928, fra Los Angeles til Chicago, og derfra videre til New York.

Historien om Route 66

Route 66 går gjennom et relativt flatt terreng. Derfor ble ruten en foretrukket vei for lastebiler og tungtrafikk som skulle med last mellom øst og vest. I USA i 30-årene var det en lang tørkeperiode som kaltes Dust Bowl. Mange bønder i Midt-Vesten ga opp gårdene sine i denne perioden, pakket eiendelene sine og ga seg i vei vestover mot California. Disse reisende ble nedsettende kalt for "oakies" og Route 66 er kjent blant annet på grunn av disse flyttende bøndene fra Oklahoma og Kansas. Store deler av den opprinnelige hovedveien var som alle andre tidlige hovedveier jord- eller grusdekket, men i 1938 ble Route 66 den første hovedvei som ble asfaltert i hele sin lengde. På tross av dette var mange strekninger på veien livsfarlige å kjøre, og økenavnet "Bloody 66" ble brukt om flere av disse strekningene. S|rlig ga strekningen gjennom Black Mountains i Arizona anledning til problemer. Strekningen var fylt med skarpe hårnålssvinger og stigningene var de bratteste på hele ruten. Mange reisende var så redde for å kjøre denne strekningen at de leide lokale som veivisere. Under 2. verdenskrig ble veien også flittig benyttet, da reiste enda flere mennesker mot vest for å arbeide for krigsindustrien i California. Veien, som allerede var popul|r, ble brukt av mange av de som tok turen mot vest, og også milit|ret benyttet Route 66 til transport av utstyr.I 1950-årene ble veien prim|rt brukt av de mange mennesker som etter hvert hadde fått mer fritid, og som reiste til Los Angeles på ferie. Painted Desert, Grand Canyon og det store meteorkrater, alle i Arizona, var blant de attraksjoner som turistene stoppet ved langs eller i n|rheten av veien.
