I noticed a lot of media coverage from the major networks, which you can usually find online. Interesting no one onboard managed to grab a video camera and tape it, as usually happens. But that actually says to me it was a scarier experience than it actually sounds.

The ship stayed at that angle for a good 30 seconds, usually when a ship rolls it starts to come back almost right away. That would lead to the fear factar as well, as such a sudden change in pitch that did not immediately resolve itself would really start to make me wonder what had happened.

And what a sense of relief when she finally righted herself.
