Blistering cold is keeping Coast Guard icebreakers busy on Delaware River

from KYW-TV

The crew of a U.S. Coast Guard icebreaker has been busy working to keep the Delaware River's shipping channel clear. "We have almost 100 percent ice coverage, in some spots, greater than 6″ of ice," said Chief Clayton Franklin. Franklin commands the Coast Guard cutter "Capstan," a 65′ small harbor tug. During a roughly nine-hour day, the cutter's crew works to keep the shipping lane open, and make sure the vessels can moor, and safely leave the terminals. more
