The U.S. Coast Guard is coordinating salvage for the crew boat Miss Lynda which ran aground on a jetty near Cameron, Louisiana on Wednesday.
The Coast Guard reported that at 7:20 a.m., Vessel Traffic Service Port Arthur personnel overheard that the Miss Lynda, a 120-foot offshore supply vessel, had run aground on the west Cameron Jetties, near the entrance to the Calcasieu Ship Channel. Marine Safety Unit Lake Charles incident response personnel deployed with Station Lake Charles boat crews to investigate the damage and determine the best method of salvage.
No injuries have been reported the four passengers and three crew aboard the ship, and no pollution has been reported.
The salvage company is still being determined, the Coast Guard said.
The four passengers have been transferred off of the ship by the Sally D, a utility vessel. The three crew members remained on the Miss Lynda at the time of the Coast Guard’s last update.
The ship is reportedly carrying construction cargo and has 4,300 gallons of fuel and 100 gallons of oil products aboard. Damage to the ship is appears to be 5 feet below the waterline, but the Coast Guard says the ship did not take on any water.
There has been no impact to traffic in the Calcasieu Ship Channel.
