The Oregon coast is expecting a large increase in maritime activity and boaters from outside of the immediate area.

  • Yesterday, Coast Guard Cutter Escanaba responded to a distress call from a 65-foot fishing boat taking on water. The fishermen were about 40 miles off the New England coast and unable to control the flooding. The cutter arrived on scene within an hour and Guardians were able to secure the source of flooding. The cutter escorted the boat back toward shore until relieved by another Coast Guard boat.
