Coast Guard frees tanker stuck in Houston Ship Channel

GALVESTON, TX Earlier this morning, the Coast Guard told us that they got the tanker, known as the Isabel Knutsen, free around 10pm last night. Tugboats were used to pull the tanker away.

The operation did not cause traffic problems for other ships in the channel. Coast Guard officials say the ship did not leak any cargo or oil while it was stuck.
