Coast Guard monitors vessel that ran aground

Posted: Monday, July 30, 2012 10:52 am

WARRENTON — The Michelle D, a fishing vessel based in Warrenton, ran aground late Sunday night, hitting pilings near the mouth of the Skipanon River and getting stuck in the mud.

The U.S. Coast Guard Station Cape Disappointment is monitoring the boat and waiting for high tide in an effort to dislodge it. Its pollution response division is also monitoring the vessel to ensure that the 300 to 400 gallons of diesel fuel inside it doesn’t pose an environmental threat.
