SURABAYA, INDONESIA - Answers are slowly trickling in as the hunt for the remains of the crashed Air Asia jet continues in the Java Sea. Search crews used sonar to find four large objects underwater, believed to be pieces of the plane. The wreckage is resting on the sea floor, about 90 feet down.

Indonesian search teams have sent in remotely operated vehicles to try and take pictures before sending in divers. But strong currents and poor visibility made things difficult. On the surface, choppy seas and bad weather continue to keep divers out of the water. The area is seeing heavy rain and wind with waves as high as 12 feet.

A total of 30 bodies have been recovered so far, and only a handful have been identified. Authorities say they expect to find more victims underwater, with the plane's wreckage.
