USNS Comfort having trouble in heavy weather

Reported here:
Rough seas left some crewmembers of the USNS Comfort with minor injuries this week.
The Baltimore-based hospital ship is experiencing rough seas in the Gulf of Mexico, where it deployed late last month to aid in the recovery efforts of Hurricane Katrina.
A member of the ship's command told 11 News that four crewmembers were hurt when they were tossed around the ship. The ship is only functioning on one boiler because the other was damaged.
