YARMOUTH, Maine (AP) - The Coast Guard has responded to a passenger ferry in Casco Bay after it became disabled in rough weather.

According to the Portland Press Herald (http://bit.ly/1PGpzQX ), the 56-foot Pied Piper reported that it was disabled at about 10:30 a.m. Friday east of Littlejohn Island. The Coast Guard’s 47-foot lifeboat and 29-foot response boat were already on the water for a training exercise and responded.

A boat from the Chebeague Island Boat Yard responded to a Coast Guard message and towed the Pied Piper to a pier on Cousins Island. The Coast Guard then inspected the vessel and cleared it to continue carrying passengers.

Authorities are still investigating the cause of the incident.
