A foundering barge is slowly slipping beneath the waves 20 miles off the coast of Miami, after it was towed into by the Coast Guard into deep waters where it can safely sink.
It’s a wait and see situation on the high seas as the U.S. Coast Guard and Boat Tow US keep a close watch on a barge taking on water off Miami Beach.
Two of seven previously stranded pilot whales are swimming strong in the Florida Straits. The mammals were released Saturday from the lower Florida Keys.
Two of the seven surviving whales were released early Saturday afternoon. A total of 14 whales have died after beaching themselves near Cudjoe Key late Thursday afternoon.
