There’s still a lot to learn about the tragic loss of the El Faro.
The Jacksonville-based cargo ship that sank last October at sea during Hurricane Joaquin, killing all 33 people on board.
Two weeks of hearings recently wrapped up looking into the cause of the El Faro disaster.

Investigators do want to confirm what mistakes were made, and also explore ways to prevent a similar tragedy from happening again.
We recap the hearings with Jacksonville maritime attorney Rod Sullivan and WJCT News reporter Ryan Benk.
