The U.S. Coast Guard reported that response crews continued work salvaging the partially submerged vessel, Stephen L. Colby, near LeClaire, Iowa despite stormy weather conditions.

Crews have been working against deteriorating weather conditions for two days to ensure any spilled fuel is cleaned up and proper salvage preparations are in place to raise the 144-foot towboat. In spite of icing and below freezing conditions salvage crews connected a bow slings to the vessel's frames in preparation for raising the 144-foot towboat from the Mississippi River bank.

The towboat came to rest along the riverbank near LeClaire after reportedly striking an unknown submerged object in the Mississippi River channel on November 25.
