On March 10, the 57 foot long fishing vessel Bergen was wrecked along the shore in Squalicum Harbor, Washington. The Bergen was berthed in Bellingham Bay when 70 mph winds caused the mooring lines to snap. The wind blew the fishing vessel away from the dock and onto the seawall. The three crew on board awoke to find the vessel going to pieces. Two were able to don their survival suits before jumping into the sea. The third had to dive into the water before he could put his suit on. All three were later rescued by the Coast Guard. No reports of injuries. Authorities placed a boom around the sunken Bergen to contain any pollution released.
