The Coast Guard is responding to a call for assistance from a disabled freighter 180 nautical miles northeast of Attu. The Mathawee Naree, a 554-ft. Thai flagged freighter, became disabled late Monday night with approximately 28,000 tons of copper concentrate on board. The Coast Guard has dispatched the Cutter Jarvis to the scene and has also launched a Coast Guard C-130 to examine the situation. The Jarvis' estimated time of arrival is Thursday. Current weather conditions are 20-foot seas with 50-knot winds. The vessel has 24 people on board and carries 760 metric tons of fuel. The Coast Guard will continue to monitor the vessel's status.
