The U.S. Coast Guard has established a safety zone east of Deer Island following the sinking of a 55-foot tug boat, Emily Anne, Tuesday morning.

Forced to abandon their sinking vessel, three men were rescued from the water by a nearby pilot boat and brought back to Boston, local media reports.

The safety zone encompasses part of the North Channel and prohibits transit of deep draft vessels. The South Channel remains open and may be used by vessels that may safely navigate it.

Weather conditions forced the cancellation of plans to locate the vessel. Attempts to locate the vessel will resume Wednesday morning.
