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.
