UPDATE: Tug, barge safely reach Port Angeles

By Seth Preston, Communications Manager

The tug Corpus Christi and barge Petrochem Supplier are safely moored at Port Angeles after a few days of uncertainty off the coasts of Washington and Oregon.

They arrived at about 3 a.m. today (Monday, April 5).

The Hunter, the state-funded emergency response tug, accompanied the tug and barge from near the Columbia River to Neah Bay. That’s where another tug took over for the remainder of the voyage to Port Angeles.
