An expedition that is surveying the wreck of the Titanic is heading back to shore.
Officials from Expedition Titanic say high seas and winds brought on by hurricane Danielle are preventing researchers from carrying out their work.
In a statement, the expedition says Danielle is expected to hit an area close to the expedition's work area, prompting the decision to head back to land.
The expedition left St. John's, NL earlier this month for the spot in the Atlantic where the famed ocean liner struck an iceberg in 1912 and sank.
Researchers have used a pair of robots to take thousands of photographs and hours of video of the wreck, which lies roughly four kilometres below the surface.
Expedition officials say they intend to return to finish their work after a delay of a few days.Report Typo/Error
