Two Barges Remain on Ohio River
Thursday, January 18, 2007
New information from the Coast Guard about two barges still unsecured after four got loose on the Ohio River Tuesday.
One barge is still stuck at the McAlpine Dam. Tugboats are keeping an eye on it in case it becomes dislodged.
That barge spilled nearly 3,000 tons of liquid fertilizer, but a Coast Guard spokeswoman says high water diluted it.
Another barge that lost its load of salt is submerged near the Sherman Minton Bridge.
