On March 10, the fishing vessel Ms. Nicani became disabled in a severe storm off Yaquina Bay, Oregon. The fishing vessel was a few miles off shore when a wave smashed the pilothouse window and ruin the electrical systems. The disabled Ms. Nicani requested assistance with two Coast Guard 47-foot Motor Life Boat responding. The Coast Guard was able to connect a towline to the Ms. Nicani, but the vessels remained off shore until conditions improve. Reports state that waves were between 20 to 25 foot high making it impossible to cross the Yaquina Bay bar. No reports of injuries to the three crew on board the Ms. Nicani.
