Runaway barges from Port of Muskogee strike dam

from Maritime Executive

Two barges that broke away from their moorings at the Port of Muskogee, Oklahoma recently have been swept downstream into the Webbers Falls Lock and Dam on the Arkansas River. The barges sank shortly after making contact, and the Army Corps of Engineers is inspecting the dam to determine the extent of any possible damage to the structure. Interstate 40 has been closed to traffic at its Arkansas River crossing, just downriver from the dam, until the evaluation is complete. more
