The 31 foot long fishing vessel Shekinah 2 ran aground just off the shore of Alamagan Island in the Northern Mariana Islands. The Shekinah 2 had run onto the rocks just 100 yards off the uninhabited island. Authorities in Guam were alerted and dispatched a patrol vessel to the scene. Rescuers had to travel nearly 300 miles to reach the Shekinah 2. The 110 foot long USCGC Assateague arrived and safely rescued all six crew off the fishing vessel. No reports of injuries.
