Trawler runs aground on rocks near the MMBT in the South Hampton Roads region

The U.S. Coast Guard says a trawler ran aground on some rocks near the Monitor-Merrimac Bridge Tunnel early Tuesday morning. The fishing vessel out of New Bedford, Massachusetts, was landing a catch when it ran aground around 1:17 a.m. The Coast Guard worked with a tug boat to re-float the ship at high tide. The trawler was re-floated at about 1:30 p.m. and the vessel went on to a Newport News marina to offload its catch. No damage to the ship occurred, and no injuries are reported. link 18:39
