Grounded Vessel Refloated on Ohio River
The U.S. Coast guard (USCG) said responses crews for the grounded Elizabeth D refloated the vessel at mile marker 65 on the Ohio River, Wednesday afternoon.
Personnel on scene, including a marine surveyor, conducted a damage survey of the vessel after it was refloated and declared it seaworthy. The Elizabeth D was towed to a nearby mooring location down river to remain overnight along with salvage vessels that assisted in the response operation.
The Elizabeth D will be towed to Neville Island, Penn., Thursday.
The cause of the grounding is under investigation, the USCG said.
