The 45 foot long fishing vessel Michelle D ran aground on the Skipanon River near Warrenton, Oregon. The fishing vessel had suffered steering failure after a malfunction causing the Michelle D to veer off course striking with pillings before running aground. All three crew members on board were uninjured. The crew went ashore during low tide. The Coast Guard dispatched a motor lifeboat to the scene. The fishing vessel remained fast in the mud, but no damage was reported. The owners of the vessel have arranged salvage. No pollution reported, but the Michelle D had some 400 gallons of diesel fuel on board at the time of the incident.
