Survivors of an oil rig explosion were reunited with families at suburban New Orleans hotel Thursday morning.

About 100 workers on the Deepwater Horizon made it onto a supply boat.

When the boat reached shore Thursday morning, those aboard were examined by doctors, then taken by bus to a hotel in suburban New Orleans where several families waited.

Meanwhile, the Coast Guard will continue combing the Gulf of Mexico for signs of 11 missing from the rig that is still in flames.

The rig, which is owned by Transocean Ltd., was under contract to the oil giant BP and doing exploratory drilling.
