The Coast Guard continues to oversee the response to damaged motor tanker 'Stena Primorsk' on the Hudson River near Stuyvesant, N.Y.

Coast Guard Sector New York was notified Thursday that the 600-foot motor tanker, Stena Primorsk, began listing after suffering a hull breach while transiting from Albany, N.Y. via the Hudson River, carrying light crude oil. The tanker is currently at anchor nearby in Stuyvesant Anchorage.

There continues to be no reports of pollution from the Stena Primorsk. Divers are scheduled to conduct a thorough examination of the ballast tanks.

Coast Guard Sector New York has established a safety zone around the vessel between Matthew Point to the north and the northern tip of Rattlesnake Island to the south restricting vessel traffic from transiting in this area until further notice.
