fox 25 he already requires his renters to wear life jackets. now he's making sure. >> certainly any time there's an accident, we try to look at what happens and see if there's something we need to do differently, but a lot of times with safety, it's really the fundamentals, getting back and making sure you're focusing on that. >> vanessa: that was blair miller reporting. another concern, usually most people in a kayak or paddle board do not have a radio with them like people do on bypass. the coast guard says that makes it even more important for people to tell someone where they're going and when they plan >> mark: u.s. naval tugboat is on its way to the final resting spot of the doomed cargo ship, el faro. the tugboat is hoping to recover the ship's voice data recorder, which is 15,000 feet under water. 33 crew members, including three people with low ties died when el faro sank during hurricane joakim last october. >> kevin: ok. back to that live storm tracker radar. you can see where the showers

more active out there in worcester county, but our first stop is going to take us to the north shore, with light shower activity right on plum island in fact. this will take us right down into it and you'll see the beaches here, right on plum island. beautiful spot. that's a moderate rainshower is looks like coming through there right now, so on the beaches, no thunder and lightning, so you don't have that to worry about, but still there are showers out here. back into worcester county, some of these becoming more time for earth, leak this one -- or more active boylston into west so that's a concern as far as the heavier shower. northeast of sterling, 190 and route 12 and heading off toward this direction, toward you, on route 12. in fact, i'll back up and show you a couple more of those showers too. let's go back to that one. here's the one coming through the winchendon area as well, we should take a look at that one. yellow showing up in here, so heaviershore coming through. -- heavier shower coming through.
