The fishing vessels Ocean Quell and Atlantic Rover required assistance from the Canada Coast Guard off the coast of Newfoundland. The 11 meter long Atlantic Rover contacted the Coast Guard that the vessel was taking on water. A search and rescue helicopter from Gander, Newfoundland reached the Atlantic Rover. The helicopter lowered a pump to the three men on board. The pump kept the water ingress in check until it could reach port under it’s own power. The 50 foot long fishing vessel Ocean Quell reported that it had water ingress and needed assistance while off the coast near St. Anthony, Newfoundland. The helicopter and the CCGS Henry Larsen was sent out. The helicopter was able to lower multiple pumps along with 2 search and rescue technicians. However, the pumps were not able to stop the water ingress and the Ocean Quell had to be abandoned. All five crewmen were safely evacuated to the Henry Larsen. No reports of injuries reported.
A barge carrying a two-story home became stuck near where the Mokelumne River and San Joaquin Rivers intersect in the Sacramento River Delta. The small vessel towing the barge had lost control of the steering allowing the barge to run aground. The barge and house listing to one side some 200 feet from shore. The Coast Guard has issued an alert since there are no lights on the structure to alert boaters of its location at night. The barge was being towed from Sacramento to Helen, California. Some damage to the home is expected as it rests partially submerged.
