Barge Runs Aground Off B.C. Coast But No Injuries Or Sign Of Pollution

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 11 Nov, 2019
  • Barge Runs Aground Off B.C. Coast But No Injuries Or Sign Of Pollution

QUADRA ISLAND, B.C. - The Canadian Coast Guard and Transport Canada have responded after a barge ran aground on Quadra Island, off the northeast coast of Vancouver Island.

 

The coast guard says in a statement it received a report just before 8 p.m. Saturday of a barge, being towed by a tug, that was grounded north of Cape Mudge.

 

It says the tug is not damaged and the six people aboard are safe and did not suffer any injuries.

 

But the hull of the barge, called the Nana Provider, was compromised so plans to refloat the barge Sunday didn't come to fruition.

 

The barge is carrying rail cars and containers on its deck, and was to be monitored overnight.

 

The coast guard is monitoring the scene for marine pollution but says at this time there is no sign of any.
