A crippled cargo ship carrying nearly a half million gallons of fuel oil was under tow toward a safe harbor Sunday, easing concerns the vessel could go aground in Alaska's remote Aleutian Islands.
A cargo ship that broke down in Alaska's Aleutian Islands while carrying canola seeds and nearly a half-million gallons of fuel oil continued its slow journey to a safe harbor Sunday as a tugboat pulled it through rough seas and up to 25-foot waves.
Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Dana Warr said the tugboat captain decided to take a longer route south of the island chain where seas were somewhat less rough.
Chief Petty Officer Warr said Sunday evening the vessels were dealing with waves between 20 and 25 feet, despite predictions that the rough seas would abate.
