Saturday, April 13th
6pm

Titanic receives her second ice warning on the evening of Saturday, April 13th. This one is sent via morse lamp from the crippled steamer Rappahannock. Traveling from Halifax to London, the Rappahannock had damaged her bow and rudder in heavy ice only 10 miles to the west of Titanic's position. Titanic flashes back a brief acknowlegement with her morse lamp and continues on coarse. No mention of this warning was posted in the chart room.
